North American Gathering 2016

July 28-31, 2016 (Thursday to Sunday) in Merritt B.C. Canada

Every four years a gathering takes place in North America to meet the MacLeod Chiefs, socialize, hear Celtic Music, learn Gaelic, hear bagpipes, see Scottish dancing and learn more about our ancient Scottish heritage.

In 2016, the gathering for 4 days and nights will take place at McLeod Castle on 5076 Highway 5A, beside Nicola Lake. There will be brunches and dinners each day with entertainment, workshops, sales, meetings, tours, tastings and optional tours, hikes and classes. There will be plenty of time to socialize and meet guests each day.

The cost of $150 Canadian ($175 for non-members) will include all meals and events at the castle. There will be an extra $25 for each optional tour (ranch or copper mine tours). More information will be updated on this website as we meet and add news.
