Celebrating the Clan Maclean

The First 25 Years of the Clan Maclean Heritage Trust

ByIan MacLean

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Celebrating the Clan Maclean tells the stories behind the places, people and events which illustrate how Macleans have made an impact worldwide - including in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Morocco, and of course in Scotland. As a clan and as individuals, Macleans have proved to be brave, loyal, determined and adventurous, although not always showing great prudence! Not exactly a history book, but certainly providing the story behind all the projects celebrated in the first 25 years of the Clan Maclean Heritage Trust. Ian MacLean, a long time Trustee describes how and why the Trust came into being; the important players behind the scenes, and has delved into the projects – whether unique, or ongoing, in an easy but still thorough way. Each chapter focuses on one such project and they all illustrate what makes Macleans unique, and special. Included are descriptions of why and how they were involved in notable castles, and battles, and further provides the backgrounds on individuals or families that have been suitably remembered. Imagine a bagpipe playing Scotsman who becomes a General for a Sultan, a devastating battle where the majority of the Macleans are killed yet results in our most famous battlecry, the building of a fort named Castle Duart (Fort Dewart), whose remains are still preserved in the United States, a blood gathering Doctor in Australia who saves lives, - these are but a few of the strange but real tales. Not forgotten are the Trust’s ongoing efforts to preserve our past through the collection and preservation of special Maclean historical items; production of books and a map designed to inform Macleans, sept members, or others who want to learn more about Clan Maclean; support for Maclean piping; and support for the maintenance of our culture both in clan lands and wider. All proceeds from the book will help support ongoing efforts of the Trust.
