The American-Scottish Foundation is delighted to update our members and friends on the most recent data we’ve been able to find on upcoming highland games, Celtic festivals and related events throughout North America. Scottish-American groups are resuming their usual early Summer buzz of outdoor activities, creating a very healthy list this year.  If you are traveling to Scotland,check out the wealth of outdoor events there – their season may be shorter, but it is now in full swing.  In addition, for our friends in Clan MacKay (and their ilk), we celebrate with them the expected inauguration of  their new Chief on August 19 in Sutherland.
