Last weekend, David and I went to a clan gathering in the Highlands. This was our first time at such a gathering--apparently they do it every three to five years. It was really fun. And it's the most bizarre feeling to be in a room full of people with the same last name and ultimate family heritage!
The gathering lasted a full week with people from all over the world (Australia, U.S., Canada, and closer to home--Scotland) but we were only able to join in on the weekend. The highlight for me was a visit to nearby Elgin and the cathedral.
We had so much fun looking around the ruins. You can even climb up one of the towers that is left for views over the town.
