hosts an annual festival celebrating the Auld Alliance between Scotland and France. This
year for the first time the Clan Maclean Association of England and Wales, is linking up with the Clan Maclean Association of France to join the celebrations. Given the ancient history of the Stewarts with Aubigny for about 400 years from 1422; we thought some of you might be interested in joining them for the weekend. The programme is quite loose with members making their own travel and accommodation arrangements and the party meeting for meals and some visits.
