Calling for all Young MacLeods!

  • Keen to discover your MacLeod heritage?
  • Enjoy meeting new people?
  • Looking for an excuse to visit Australia?

What is Young MacLeods?

We’re a group of young people aged 18-30 who want to celebrate our heritage! The Associated Clan MacLeod Societies strive to provide meaningful and age appropriate social and educational activities for their younger members and friends.

Why Young MacLeods?

To keep our Clan alive and future driven and to maintain a world-wide network of friendships. A Young MacLeods event is being held in 2021 in advance of the Clan MacLeod Parliament in Dunvegan in July 2022.

South Australia is excited to hold its first Young MacLeods Gathering, which will be run as part of a Clan MacLeod World Gathering 14-18 April 2021 in McLaren Vale. Both events are great opportunities to meet and greet new or old acquaintances and reunites people from across the world. You don’t’ need to be a MacLeod to join in!

This will be a week-long experience Down Under, to discover clan heritage and explore the beautiful sights of South Australia. Held in conjunction with 2021 World Gathering, our programme accommodates younger interests, combining with some major activities of the World Gathering 2021. Some things to look forward to are:

  • MacLeod Ceilidh
  • MacLeod Grand Ball
  • Moana Sands Conservation & Aboriginal Cultural Coastal Walk
  • Urrimbirra Wildlife Park – lookout for those drop bears!
  • Adelaide Oval – embrace Aussie Rules Football with a pie & a pint
  • McLaren Vale Wineries – enjoy the delicious wine from local vineyards
  • Beaches – endless views, walks & waves on South Aussie shores
  • City Centre – Adelaide’s CBD museums, art, shops, bars and restaurants
  • a bus tour of MacLeod of Raasay pioneer sites 
  • MacLeod of Raasay grave dedication at Adelaide City Cemetery
