The 12th Clan Carmichael International Gathering
Monday June 29th to Friday July 3rd 2020
The latest in a series of International Carmichael Gatherings – each organised by Chief Richard and his family since 1983 will be held at Carmichael Scotland in late June early July 2020. Previous gatherings have been held at the rate of three a decade and this year’s event will be the third hosted by Chief Richard with son Andrew, supported by Lady Patricia, daughter Sarah and grandsons Fraser & Aidan.
As well as marking the new decade ahead for the Clan the Visit Scotland theme this year will be to celebrate the year of Scotland’s magnificent Coast and Waters. We have created a busy and exciting program that will keep everyone enthralled.
The schedule is subject to change as arrangements become formalised.
