A delightful meander through the ancient history of one of Scotland's most distinguished clans.


by Charlotte Fairbairn


If you cast around for a historical guide to the Clan Mackay, you will find three principal books - one by Sir Robert Gordon, one by Robert Mackay and a third by Angus Mackay. Each of these is learned and interesting in its way but the most recent was written in 1906.

It seemed high time for an updated version - one that fills in some rather yawning 20th century gaps, one that speaks to a contemporary audience, one that acknowledges an international longing to research family roots.


The Real Mackays is now available as an ebook, as well as in print. To find out more, click here.
