For those interested, I am posting the proposed itinerary for the Clan trip to Scotland in August of 2016. The price for shared accommodations is 1975 pounds per person. While this may seem expensive, for those that have been there before, it shouldn't be surprising. We are trying to get an idea of how many are planning on going since a deposit will be required by the end of October. There will also be an option for a McElvain-related tour following for a few days. I will be back posting a similar itinerary for that option and a price.

No, it's not Clan MacBean Monday, but...

Found this section on the Scotweb page on Clan MacBain having to do with the separation of the Bains of Tulloch from Clan MacBean to Clan Mackay.


Logiebride 1597, At a time of peace between the Clan MacKenzie and Clan Munro a fight broke out at a fair in logiebride which almost put the whole of Ross-shire into combustion. The fight began between John Macgillichallum (brother to the Laird of Raasay) and Alexander Bane (brother to Duncan Bane of Tulloch). The Munros took the side of Alexander Bane and the MacKenzies took the side of John Macgillichallum. John Macgllicham was killed along with John Mac-Murdo Mac-William and three others from the Clan MacKenzie. Alexander Bane escaped but three on his side were also killed; John Munro of Culcraggie, his brother Hutcheon Munro and John Munro Robertson. The clans MacKenzie and Munro then began assisting each side in preparing to invade each other. However nothing ever came of it and peace was resumed.

Alexander Bane was the brother of the chief of Clan MacBain. Alexander’s descendants later left the Clan MacBain and Chattan Confederation. They moved north and became a sept of the Clan MacKay.

Hello! I am wondering if there will be any local representation at the Portland Highland Games going on this Saturday? ...

MacBean Monday! (Running out of material!) The poem "Mo run geal og"/"My Fair Young Love" is mentioned in both McIan's section on the clan and the former chief's book on the Clan as possibly being written by Gillies MacBean's widow after he was killed at Culloden. On one of my first trips to Scotland, I went to the Scottish Poetry Library to research this and was referred to an expert on Gaelic poetry named Derick Thomson. Both he and an article in Scots Magazine agreed that the writer was not Gillies' widow, but a Christina Ferguson who was married to a William Chisholm, who, like Gillies, was killed at Culloden under heroic circumstances. I received copies of the poem in Gaelic and English from Mr. Thomson that are part of this post. I also found a song based on the poem by a Scottish female singer. Will post her name and the record when I find it.

Clan MacBeanAm trying to get the Regional reps and conveners to let me know which games they will be at so I can give people a heads up. It's not easy or cheap to do a clan tent at a games. We need volunteers to help set up, staff, and take down the tent when we do have representation at a games. I got to where I am helping the long-time Colorado convener (probably had more titles) Bill Beane with the tent at numerous games in the Colorado area.

MacBean Monday! Tomatin House, home of the MacBeans of Tomatin. The earliest record of the house is in the year 1639. The first picture is from the House website and was sketched by a governess of the family in the 1830s. The last MacBean emigrated in 1928 and the house was bought by the great-grandmother of the present owner. Again, this info is from the House website.

David GeddesIts highly likely that attempts to visit the old Tomatin MacBean Laird's house would be frustrated. It is run through an agency as an exclusive private country house retreat, with the prices high and the exhorbitant fishing rights on the Findhorn river sold to those taking on the rentals. Its a very expensive bit of real estate and its not visible from the west side of the Findhorn, but can be seen with a bit of walking from the Corrybrough side - Corrybrough being a MacBean estate tenancy farm for hundreds of years (a tack as we prefer in Scotland). Unless hiring the place the best views are on the webpages for the rental company. The last MacBean laird even occasionally in residence (Lachlan 10th died 1924) having made their money from law, commence in coffee, cotton and sugar from the plantations in Guyana and Jamaica - (yes and the slaving triangle) - sold up and left for South Africa and the then Rhodesia - now Zimbabwe. The Old Lairds House' is even earlier than the one portrayed here and probably a tack on the orginal estate - as it is described as being in the hands of younger Gillies MacBean who survived Culloden with two musket balls in his leg, escaped helping rescue the 'Gentle Cameron' of Locheil from the battlefield - his ankles broken by the grape shot. The escaped to Frithe to the 'Old Lairds House' now in the grounds beyond the Tomatin distillery and rapidly becoming a ruin. Here the younger Gillies had his wife dig out the musket balls with her scissors and then they escaped onwards towards Loch Lochy over the high droving paths south west of Fort Augustus. The Cameron made it to France and died in the company of one C E Stuart. Macbean returned when it was safe and lived to be an old man. Incidentally Duncan Macbean, son of Duncan Macbean 7th died when swept away whilst fishing for salmon on the Findhorn age 23 on 20 June 1849. His grave is easily seen at Moy. If of interest I can elaborate on most of the points described. (Duncan, who drowned, was related to me as 3rd cousin 6 x removed - which is quite distant!)

No, it's not Clan MacBean Monday, but if you are thinking about putting together a Clan Tent, I have some suggestions. On the right is a tartan tablecloth sold by Zazzle that comes in various sizes. On the left is a tartan shower curtain which you could use to cover a table overnight. Most games are secure enough that the non-high value stuff can sit out if protected. The Chief's son Richard is working on some great designs for banners that can hang around the tent showing Alan Bean, Donald McBain, Doug McLaren (Mt. Everest), Gillies MacBean, the meanings of the shield quadrants, and the names associated with the Clan

At an Estes Park games back in the 90s, I met artist Mark Churms, who is known for British Military prints and did the Bannockburn painting in the new Bannockburn visitor's Center. He did a print on Culloden that centered on Gillies MacBean's exploits at Culloden. I picked up one then and I believe they are still available through his website. That's Gillies in the middle with his sword raised. ...

ATTENTION, Members!
We are looking for descendants of Philo Bean, a Readfield, Maine, bricklayer (1792-1858).

Please contact genealogist@clanmacbean.org with any questions.

Clan MacBean Monday! In the Clan Chief's booklet on the MacBeans, he mentions a ship, the Clan MacBean that was part of the Clan Line passenger and cargo shipping company that operated in one form or another in the late 1800's and through the mid 1900's. Some were older boats that were bought and renamed as Clan ships while others were built by the company and sold, losing their clan name. There were two Clan MacBeans, one built in 1917 by the company and another built in 1942 and bought by the company in 1948. The picture is of the 1918 ship. They often appear for bids on ebay as postcards or photos. Sometimes they are postcards that have been cut down to a smaller size or are nothing more than nice copies of original photos, so be careful of what you are buying. ...

Clan MacBean Monday! Since I've posted the Clan tartans, I thought I'd post the McElvain (and its different spellings) sept tartans. The Modern is the darker pattern with the bolder, darker colors and the Ancient are the softer, lighter shades. MacBean/McElvain is generally described as MacIntosh with a dark like through it. The only mill to produce these tartans was D.C. Dalgleish of Selkirk and I even went by and talked to the current generation of owning family years ago. They really couldn't tell me anything about its origin. The mill was taken over by Scotweb and the company is trying to continue Dalgleish's tradition methods of weaving. For you McElvains out there, you might want to check out the Maybole, Scotland website. The McElvains were from the area south and east of Ayr and Maybole could be considered one of our "hometown"s. The have both an outstanding website and a Facebook page.
