An unique event took place in Edinburgh in July 2009. As part of the year long Homecoming celebrations, a two day Gathering of Clans and Families took place in Holyrood Park. An estimated 40,000 people came to see the bands, highland games, displays and other attractions, and to visit the Clan Village.

Nearly 100 Clans and Families had taken space in the attractive tents of the Village to meet the kinsmen from around the world. The Duries shared a tent with the Eliott Family from the Borders, and we made good companions. Many came by to see us, and new contacts and friendships were made.
