Clan MacKenzie History 2000 +
Following the success of the first Clan Parliament, a second such gathering was held in 2000 which, in addition to the normal talks, tours and dinners, included a special event - a formal reconciliations with old rivals the Munros, featuring a torchlit march together into Dingwall where the chiefs toasted each other's clans. In 2012 a new history of the MacKenzies, "May We Be Britons", was published by Andrew McKenzie and made available through the Scottish Society [here], which now has members all over the world. New clan societies have been created in France and Germany, and members from all the societies come together in Scotland every five years for international gatherings. The 2015 gathering featured another reconciliation - with the MacDonalds, who participated in a seminar about the battle of Pairc, marched into Strathpeffer for a chiefly exchange of swords, peacemaking toasts, and finally a ceilidh of the clans at Castle Leod.
