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.
The following are the forthcoming events in which the Clan will be involved or has been invited. For further information contact the Secretary.

Report by Ruth Cooper
Hector MacAulay, from Crieff in Perthshire Scotland, was elected as Chief of the International Clan MacAulay Association in August 2010 for a five year period.
The Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris), the Clan MacAulay plant badge could become the National Tree of Scotland. A campaign to achieve this by leading environmentalists attracted the support of the Scottish Wildlife Trust, The Woodlands Trust, The John Muir Trust, Trees for Life, The RSPB and many other interested groups.

After receiving my test results almost 4 years ago, I have been in the same position as most of us who have done DNA testing – What do the test results tell us?
To assist in answering this question, last year I agreed to take on the task of administrator for the Family Tree DNA MacAulay surname project.
