Forward Together

Founded in 1960, the Clan Hannay Society is dedicated to global fellowship and friendship of all those bearing or descended from the family names Hannay, Hannah, Hanna or Hanney.

Meet the Chief

Dr. David R. Hannay, Chief of Clan Hannay of Kirkdale and That Ilk, trained at Cambridge University and St. George’s Hospital in London. He taught at the University of Glasgow and was Professor of General Practice in Sheffield before returning to Galloway as a partner in a local practice and Director of a Regional Research Network. He plays bagpipes, both Highland and Scottish smallpipes, and has enjoyed traveling the world and meeting members of the Clan  diaspora across the globe . He and his wife Janet, a teacher and environmentalist, live in Wigtownshire.

Sorbie Tower

The ancient keep of Sorbie, owned by the Clan Hannay Society, was build in the 16th century.  The ancient seat of the family, it was constructed beside the site of a twelfth-century wooden fort whose foundations can still be seen today. A major restoration campaign is in the works to return the structure to its former glory.
