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.

Gathering 2021

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021 Gathering was virtual.  It was held on Saturday, May 29th, and it consisted of a video presentation followed by a live Zoom forum with the chief and convenor.  You can watch the video presentation here.  Note that, of course, the forum mentioned in the video is no longer active.

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.
