Clan MacMillan 7-day Lochaber Gathering and Tour.

The only tour specific to your Scottish clan or family.

Highland Roots Ancestral Tours, LLC is the only tour agency which provides in-depth clan history to your Highland clan or Lowland family. Scottish historian Graeme M. Mackenzie, MA, historian for both Clans MacKenzie and MacMillan, accompanies each tour, (read more about Graeme's experience and credentials.) Tours include ancestral lands, sites such as clan centres, castles, churches and battlefields integral to your clan's history and those of more general interest such as museums and archives. And the grand finale to your tour will be a formal dinner with your clan chief.

Currently there are tours available for Clan MacKenzie for Sacred Sites & Spectacular Scenery Tour and West Coast Tour. For Clan MacMillan there are the Castles & Movies Tour and Time Travel Tour tours. Other ancestral tours may be organized based upon request and internal genealogy research conducted by the company’s contracted resident historian and genealogist.

A relaxed, worry-free experience.

Leave the details to us. Tour leader Carol Millican Morris provides an experience that allows you to focus on your clan's history, Scotland's charm, breathtaking scenery and the fellowship of your clanspeople while she takes care of the details. During your week-long tour all transportation, accommodations and reservations at sites requiring them are provided. All you need do is show up. The initial meeting sites are either in Glasgow or Inverness, readily accessible from their international airports (we don't provide transportation to and from these sites).

Travel in the company of your family and friends.

You'll travel with your group only. We don't mix groups so there are no surprises. The maximum number of attendees is 12.

In season or off-season.

We can host your tour any time of year, including off-season (September through May) when prices of accommodations are lower.

May we organize a tour for you?

We would be happy to explore the possibility of organizing an itinerary specific to your clan if it is not currently listed. For more information contact Carol Morris by email or call 865-765-1120.
