A day of mixed weather saw Clan Arthur in the Clan Tent at the Cowal Highland Gathering for the third year running. We shared the popular attraction with Clans Ferguson, MacPhearson, MacFarlane, MacPhie, Colhuon & MacAulay.

We had a new MacArthur banner this year and this seemed to attract more people of the name. Around twenty MacArthur visitors showed interest as well as other clan folk whom we helped as usual with their Scottish origins - All part of the service. The Chief, his fiancée Lorraine and his mum Pat dropped in to see us and two other members renewed their membership.

The Chief and Pat were asked to present the James MacArthur of that Ilk Memorial Quaich in honour of our late Chief and this led to a good photo opportunity. The quaich was won by 1st Troon Boys Brigade.

Of course, back at the tent, Artair Bear (See below)commanded his usual audience. If we could have sold that bear once! Well, that’s the end of the 2005 Highland Games season - We’ll be oot again next year.
