Clan Maitland visit their family home
It was a real pleasure to meet members of Clan Maitland who had travelled from all over the world for their Clan Gathering in Scotland.
Their trip would not have been complete without a visit to their ancestral home, Thirlestane Castle, where the Maitland family have lived for over 400 years.
The group enjoyed lunch and a tour of the castle before some free time to explore the grounds and other facilities.
For many, this was the first time they had been able to retrace their ancestors' steps and see where their relatives once lived.
