Gathering 2017 Stirling, Scotland.


under construction, subject to change

A decision has been made to hold the 20th International Gathering and 12th Parliament of the Clan Macfie in Stirling, Scotland. Finlay McFee, his wife Lorraine, Fiona and I visited the Stirling University campus on the 14th of June and found it to be a most suitable place to hold the 2017 Clan Gathering and Parliament.

We had an excellent lunch before we met with the Events Manager. If all the food is to this standard, our stay should be very enjoyable. The accommodation is of good quality. Some rooms are twins, but the majority are fitted with a five foot bed. All rooms have a shower room and other facilities. There are two floors in the hotel with a limited number of rooms on the ground floor. We forgot to ask if there were lifts but we will check and cover this at a later date.

On the campus map above the yellow coloured buildings are apartments, studios and double studios which are not available during our time in Stirling. At the moment only twenty rooms are available for us in the Stirling Court Hotel (google maps link) (key places no 11 on the map), therefore it may be a good idea to book now. We were told that it is likely that other rooms will become available as other parties may have overbooked and may release rooms which will be allocated to Clan Macfie. We will have our own dining room, which is on the ground floor as are the meeting rooms. The meeting rooms are fully fitted with overhead projectors, etc.

For further information regarding accommodation, availability, pricing etc email: gathering2017@clanmacfie.co.uk

There will be no student accommodation available during our time at the University as the University term is beginning about then. There are plenty of Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs) in Stirling and Bridge of Allan, which is a short walk from the University entrance.
