The decision has now been made to move the Gathering to 2022. It is now scheduled to take place over the weekend of the 9th – 12th September 2022.
We, the Clan Home Association, hope that this postponement will ensure a wonderful, well attended and memorable Gathering, as all of the previous ones have been!

We hope to see you all there!
The Clan Home Association are exploring, as part of the preparations for the Gathering in August 2018, the possibility of attending the Edinburgh Tattoo.
Those who are attending the Gathering and interested in joining a party to go to Edinburgh to enjoy this magnificent spectacle are invited to contact the Membership Secretary by 29 November to indicate interest. For planning purposes, we are looking at, Tuesday 14/8/2018.
If it proves viable, the Association will seek to buy tickets to form a party.
Clan Home members are encouraged to attend the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in Linnville, North Carolina, USA:
The Highland Games themselves are something to be witnessed and enjoyed by Scotland lovers everywhere, in a mountain-surrounded setting that will surely conjure up memories of the Highlands. But members and associates of the Home Clan worldwide will want to attend this event to foster interaction between the Home/Hume family lines from around the world. Please plan to attend the games if you will be in the area and enjoy the time with other Clan Home members!!
This will be both fun and rewarding:
If you are a Home/Hume family member, or associate (i.e. related to a Home/Hume by marriage or in some other way) we strongly urge you to attend this gathering to help cement the ties between Homes/Humes in the United States, Scotland and around the world; you will be able to march in the Parade of Tartans to show off the Home/Hume Tartan and most of all simply enjoy yourself.

The 2013 Gathering of the Clan Home took place over the period 6th-9th September. It was a great success, with over 120 attending. Typical comments from attendees were ‘brilliant’ and ‘magnificent’. A particularly welcome feature of the event was the presence of large contingents from other countries around the world, including the United States and South Africa. Others came from Canada, New Zealand, Norway, the Netherlands, Finland among other places. Some wore their own (non-Scottish) national dress at times!
