This year it was the turn of New Zealand to sponsor the Clan Donald wreath at the commemoration of the Massacre of Glencoe on 13 February 2018 held in Glencoe. The wreath was laid on our behalf by Lois MacDonell of Glengarry.
The sponsorship of the wreath is rotated each year among the following Clan Donald Societies; New Zealand, USA, Australia, Highlands and Islands, and Canada.
The commemoration commenced with a service in St Mary’s Church, followed at midday with a march to the Memorial and a ceremony with wreath laying. Lunch in the Glencoe Inn followed.
Alain Macdonald of the Clan Donald Society of the Highlands and Islands has kindly provided some photos taken on the day.
