The Gathering

26 Jul

I’m pretty sure there is going to be a lot of Scotch Whisky consumed this weekend. 🙂 The Gathering is, according to the BBC:

… the centrepiece of the Homecoming celebrations, to mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of national bard, Robert Burns.

It culminates with a clan parade along the Royal Mile and a pageant on the esplanade at Edinburgh Castle.

Organisers said demand for tickets had been “phenomenal”, despite the event not selling out.

The convention was to see 100 of Scotland’s clan chiefs assembled together for the first time in recorded history.

Hundreds of clan representatives from across the world are also in attendance.

I wish I were there. I’ll have a dram in their honor!
