Clan Maclean Heritage Trust
Welcome to the home page for the Clan Maclean Heritage Trust.
The purpose of the Trust is "promoting and advancing the education of the public in the history, traditions and music of the Clan Maclean" (from the 1996 Trust Deed). It seeks to preserve and make widely known the enormous contribution that members of the Clan Maclean have made, and are still making, in politics, medicine, literature, music, sport, exploration and other forms of scientific endeavour, military campaigns and many other fields. It ensures that their achievements are not forgotten, not only through the printed word but also through the preservation of manuscripts, artefacts, buildings and other tangible links. It also promotes the continuing contribution of Macleans in these areas.

The work of the Trust depends upon the continuing support of Clan members. We urge all of you who have an interest in the Clan's heritage to become a Friend or simply to make a donation. We welcome also manuscripts and books about Macleans and gifts of historic artefacts associated with famous Macleans. See the Donations and subscriptions page for practical information on how you could help.
