History of the Clan Lindsay Gatherings

The Inaugural Meeting of the Clan Lindsay Society took place in Edinburgh on Wednesday, 27th October 1897.  In September 1898, to mark the 500th anniversary of the creation of the Earldom of Crawford, a celebration was held at Balcarres House in Fife.  So successful was this event that when the Society held its first Annual General Meeting on 21st October 1898, it was agreed to hold a Clan Assembly at Edzell Castle the following September and so began the Clan Gatherings as we know them.
