Calling Macleans to the Tatoo

Calling all Macleans to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo!

You may already know that this summer the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is celebrating its world famous performance in A Splash of Tartan, with the Clans of Scotland participating for the first time.

The Clan Maclean’s night is Wednesday 9th August at 9:00pm.

We will be marching on to the esplanade, with our chief, Sir Lachlan Maclean, and it would be wonderful if as many clans people as possible could support the occasion, probably gathering first within the castle walls for the parade.

Clan Maclean tartan will be projected on to the battlements that night.

The only requirement by the Tattoo organizers is that we must all wear some piece of Maclean tartan. Before the Parade and Tattoo, the Clan Maclean Association will arrange a reception in Edinburgh, with a “high tea” or equivalent. We hope to arrange transport up to the castle esplanade from there.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I hope as many as possible will take advantage of it; and support our chief!

With best wishes,
The Very Rev. Allan Maclean of Dochgarroch

Macleans At Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor December 7th, 2016 marks the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Naval Station Pearl Harbor. The two brief horrifying hours on the quiet Pacific island of Hawaii drew the United States into World War II.

Researchers at the Maclean History Project have confirmed that at least 27 Macleans were present when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Only two Maclean cousins, Edward and Mancel Lane aboard the U.S.S. Arizona, were among the casualties.
