Clan Scott Scotland are presently in talks with the Scottish Border Council to obtain planning permission to erect a cairn at the traditional meeting place at Bellendean near Hawick in the Scottish borders, They have obtained the backing of Scottish Water, the owners of the land, having purchased it in the '60's when the reservoir was extended, They are waiting for the council to return from the festive break, this is being done on behalf of ALL the Clan Scott Groups as its for the good of the Clan
Another project being looked into is a Border Clan Centre at Branxhole Castle, 3miles south of Hawick, this project is in the very early stages,

Last weekend we were at the Celtic Festival in Glen Innes and it was the mildest and warmest one so far with record numbers attending the year of the Irish. Huge crowds lined the main street to see the parade of Clans, Pipe Bands, Dancing Groups, Old Cars, Viking and many more and we were very priviledged to have our own pipers, Bradley and Edward Scott, who piped us in the parade and they did a wonderful job. Well done and we are very proud to have you as members. We held a raffle for Mother’s Day and I asked Edward if he would draw the winning name, and would you believe, it was not rigged, that Edward himself drew out his own name and very pleased he was to have won. A bottle of Baileys Irish Cream and a tin of shortbread biscuits was kindly donated to us for the raffle. Also in attendance at Glen Innes was Brenda Scott, the boys Mother, Ken Scott who is a piper and banner bearer for the Armidale Pipe Band. Russell Scott who is a piper in the Glen Innes Pipe Band and Russell Scott who is a piper and his wife Dot. It was good to see them and to have a chat.
My husband Paul and I will be leaving on Wednesday for Trilby Station near Louth on the Darling River for two weeks voluntary work on the 300,000 sheep station which we are looking forward to. Our next Gathering will be at Aberdeen on the first weekend in July and maybe some of you will be able to attend.
Two of our members in Scotland, Kevin and John, who send us all those interesting articles were elected on the Executive Committee for Clan Scott Scotland and I wish them every success in their new roles and I look forward to a closer working relationship for the good of Clan Scott.
Best wishes – Heather de Sylva – Commissioner
