FĂ ilte - Welcome Macleans!

Welcome to the Clan Maclean Association in the United States (formerly Clan Gillean USA), a member of Clan Maclean International. This is a place for American Macleans to connect with other kin, clan, and family.

We work hard to preserve and share the history of our ancient clan and the genealogical records of its members; we also take pride in continuing the traditions, music, and stories of Macleans throughout the world. Many members volunteer to represent the Macleans at Scottish games and gatherings throughout the United States. Occasionally we host special events such as galas, ceilidhs, and other get-togethers. We hope you join us for one!

We invite you to join us and connect with the ancient world-wide Maclean family.

Duart Castle Restoration Progress

Duart Castle in the Fall

Stage 4 is underway and on course to stay within its budget of £500,000. At the moment no additional works have been identified for this stage. The stonemasons hope to have completed their work outside by the end of November so they can move inside the castle to take down the old plaster over the winter months. Obviously some of this is weather dependent, but at the moment they are on course to achieve their completion of this stage as planned by June 2018.

The Appeal is planning to contribute half (£250,000) of the cost of Stage 4. To achieve its target the Appeal needs to raise an additional £120,000. We need your help! For U.S. residents donate today at duartappeal.org. Non U.S. residents go to maclean.org and assist the Appeal to achieve its commitment for Stage 4.
