Message from Jamie Macnab of Macnab

I am sad to announce the death of my father, James Charles Macnab of Macnab, 23rd Chief of Clan Macnab. He died peacefully in St Andrews Community Hospital on 11th January after a short illness. He was aged 86.

There will be a Memorial at the Kirk in Killin at 2pm on Friday 15th March, followed by a procession to Innis Bhuie (The Macnab Burial Island) for the interment of the ashes of the Chief and his late wife Diana Mary Macnab of Macnab who died only one year ago. All clansmen will be welcome.
Kind Regards,

Jamie Macnab of Macnab

Clan Society information is usually available in a box located on this page. If it is information that takes up more than a few sentences in space then, in the future, you will find a link to it published here.
In 2008 the Society changed its basic organization from a membership society to an educational and charitable organization. Therefore, there is no membership status available, the Society collects no dues and the organization is maintained solely by donations. You may contact any member of the Board of Directors through email by clicking on the link provided at the top of this page. If you have questions you would like to pose or information that may be of interest, we will be happy to hear from you. The Society does not provide genealogical information or data as that activity is beyond our capabilities.
A bit of historical fact
The Scottish Dirk was a favorite sidearm of the wild Highlanders for many centuries. Descendent from the Medieval ballock knife, the dirk was excellent both as a utility piece and as a weapon. Frequently the dirk had a smaller knife that piggy backed in the sheath. This small knife was used for lesser chores as well as eating.
