My husband is very proud to be of the Clan Donnachaidh! His mother's family is Reid, a sept of the Duncan Clan.

I know of two fine web sites that have a wealth of information:

http://www.donnachaidh.com/

http://www.clandonnachaidhsouth.com/

And due to the kindness of a UK Internet, I have a lovely photograph of the kirk at Struan taken not too many years ago . I will try to post it here so those interested may enjoy it!

I've just added three photos to my album here at Celtic Radio, of the kirk at Struan, the marker that is in front of it and a sweet photo of a family visiting the church watching a piper play...

Enjoy!

Hi SB. I've never been in this forum and I just saw your post. As you know I too am a member of Clan Donnachaidh. I'm an officer with the Southern Branch. I and my family proudly wear our clan tartan. Usually once a week my kids are sporting their Clan Donnachaidh shirts. For those of you in the southern region I invite you to join our group. We are a fun group of people and we try to have gatherings out side of the games.

BTW SB I enjoyed the pictures. Oh our web site is under construction so if anyone is interested in our group you can contact me.

Last week I went to [URL=http://www..donnachaidhinternational.com and requested a youth membership for my 2 children. They received a very nice certificate and a letter of welcome. For those of you who are associated with Clan Donnachaidh and have children under 21 years of age you may want to check it out. The certificate is free.

I'm not a member of a clan, I've been married to a Duncan for 36 years!!! Maybe one day Duncan and I will become members of Clan Donnachaidh! I've read that Scottish Duncan's are descendants of King Duncan! biggrin.gif

Hi Maggie, from my understanding Donnachaidh means the sons of Duncan. So that means Duncan is Donnachaidh. Most folks know us as clan Robertson, but that is not correct. I know the Donnachaidhs are descendent from some king but I'm not sure which one. I'll have to look that up. I was thinking it was Malcom. But I'll look it up and let you know.

I know this is considerably late considering when the last post was but here we go. My name over there to the left is the gaelic name of the clan, headed up by the Robertsons due to the loyalty and bravery shown at the Battle of Bannockburn. The Clan is broken down by tiers of which the order slips my mind, but at the top right below Robertson are Reid (myself) and Duncan.
The Clan is far older than Bannockburn however, as they were only known as Robertsons after that. Before they were MacDonnchaidhs descended from King Duncan I of Scotland who was eventually killed by his own soldiers led by a certain Macbeth Duke of Moray. Malcolm 'Canmore' was Duncan's eldest son.

Fascinating! Synchronicity strikes -- I was just talking today with another teacher in my department who is teaching Macbeth next week -- he was interested in comparing the Shakespeare version of the story with any historical realities that may diverge from it. We know the Shakespeare plays tipped the occasional hat to the royals or other nobles that might be seeing them, so the details were not always 100% accurate where they might give slight.

I just found this site and am trying to figure out how to post. I am a member of the Duncan Clan and attended my first gathering of the clans this past fall. It was a fantastic experience. My children and grandchildren loved it.
