The Lonach Gathering (an annual Clan Gathering held at Strathdon in the Highlands of Scotland) has been celebrated since 1822 and is as synonymous with Scottish history and tradition as Single Malt Whisky.
In celebration of the Gathering, the Lonach range of exceptional single malt whiskies represents a collection of some of the finest whiskies from Scotland’s leading malt whisky distilleries.
“The Lonach Gathering” is traditionally held on the fourth Saturday in August.
The Lonach Highland and Friendly Society was founded to commemorate the majority of John Forbes, son of the first baronet in 1822.
The Lonach day begins with a march by the men of Lonach in full Highland dress, the marches route passes by the patrons of the gathering and it is customary that those on the march receive a dram from each of the main households they stop at.
The mass of marching men stop at several houses including Candacraig the home of one of Scotland’s most famous sons Billy Connolly.
