The Gathering was a great success, with nearly 200 people attending from around the world. The photo below shows The Clan Chief, Margaret Eliott, being piped into the area where we all listened to some brief speeches and then watched displays of falconry and brawling. Other displays were held in other parts of the grounds of Redheugh, the Chief's residence.

The story draws heavily on the Clan system in Scotland in a very turbulent period in The Borders. It includes both contemporary and historical information which will interest those who enjoy supernatural or historical or thriller genres.
David Elliot is 57, frustrated, out of work and has three failed marriages behind him. In 2007 he goes to the Borders of Scotland hoping that his ancestry will help him find some validation of his life. Accompanied by his daughter, son-in-law and his grandson Thomas, he finds that his bloodline leads his family into terrifying danger. 700 years of history threaten those he holds dearest, as myth and reality of “The Bloodiest Valley in Britain” combine.
The corruption of the rich and powerful meets legend as Good and Evil clash over the ancient Throne of Scotland and power in the modern world. William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, Border Reivers, creatures of supernatural horror and past heroes of the Elliot Clan are all involved, as the evil Lord William de Soulis actions his plan to assume power over an unsuspecting world.
All that stands against him is a family fighting desperately to protect a child. Their only weapon is their love of family… the power of their Clan.
