The main aims of the clan are:
The promotion of the spirit of Clansmanship, of belonging in kinship, to foster an interest in Scotland, the land, our origins, our history, in a multicultural world. The clan aims to retain something of value in a World of Changing values. Our Clan is based on Democracy and Meritocracy not Aristocracy and Patronage. The Clan MacAulay Association holds a Gathering in Scotland every two years.
Again this year we were delighted to enjoy a Robbie Burns & Celtic Night ceilidh at Ashbridges Bay, ably organized by two of our good friends from Clan MacLachlan, Jim and Rebecca.

The Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris), the Clan MacAulay plant badge could become the National Tree of Scotland.
