The Chief of Clan MacDougall has now set the dates for the next International Gathering of Clan MacDougall in Oban, Scotland. The Gathering will be held from Tuesday 30 July to Sunday 4 August, 2019 at Dunollie Castle in Oban. The Gathering is for clansmen from around the world, not just Society members. Though the 2019 event programme has not yet been announced, activities in past years have typically ranged from a choice of sea based tours and overland bus trips to our clan historic sites, to a fine social evening. It is a memorable week in a beautiful location, never forgotten by those of us who have attended it. More information for our 2019 Gathering will be announced come as plans finalized. However, Oban is also a very nice base for trips to surrounding areas and to the islands.
