The Clan at Bannockburn 700
Over the weekend of 27th to 29th June 2014, the Clan joined the Bannockburn 700 celebrations.
The weekend started on Friday, 27th at Pipefest at Stirling Castle. The Clan mustered in a nearby hostelry before marching with all the pipebands and other clans through the City of Stirling from the Castle to the King's Knot.
We had an excellent turnout of clansfolk marching. We marched behind a pipeband from Scunthorpe in England.
After the march, the Clan retired to Mr Singh's India Cottage for a late supper.
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.
Oh boy, what a fighter Dave McAuley was!

America’s most powerful politicians honoured Rosa McCauley Parks last month by unveiling her statue in the US Capitol’s Statutory Hall. President Barack Obama who attended the unveiling praised Parks as an enduring reminder of what true leadership requires, “no matter how humble or lofty our positions”.
