About Our Society


Clan MacNicol Australia is a non-profit association with the aims of:

(1) Cultivating the spirit of kinship with Clan members throughout the world.

(2) Preserving the literary, historical and genealogical records and artefacts relating to the Clan.

(3) Promoting and honouring our Clan heritage and cultivating among our members, the pride and spirit of our ancestors.

Membership provides numerous benefits for your family. As well as helping the Clan to achieve its aims, we try to help Clan members keep up with the latest news and in touch with fellow kin through our newsletter 'Southern Cross' which is published and sent out to members three times a year.

The Clan is being progressively "raised" worldwide and is already quite a social force. For instance, the Clan purchased 130 acres of land in the Isle of Skye in the Hebrides of Scotland in 1987 from subscriptions worldwide. By doing this, we saved a beauty spot near the town of Portree in Skye from being turned into a water sports resort. This land, now open to the public as free access park, known as Ben Chracaig, is part of the original Scorrybreac Estate; so we now have roots in Scotland where our forbears came from!
