Clan and Societies Information

It is all about the clans after all. Seriously, the Stone Mountain Highland Games would not exist if it were not for the Clans. We are fortunate to have over 100 Clan Associations and Scottish Societies participate in our annual "Gathering of the Clan." We hope you will join us this year and take a stroll along Clan Row renewing old friendships and making new ones.

Wilkins Fisk Urquhart of Urquhart was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is the eldest child and first son of the late 27th Chief Kenneth Trist Urquhart of Urquhart and his wife Mary Virginia. As a teen, living in the New Orleans’ suburb of ‘Old Jefferson’, he began playing the ‘phiob mhor’, the Great Highland bagpipe, and became an enthusiastic Scottish Country dancer and still enjoys doing both.

The Chief is the holder of two academic degrees: Bachelor of Science in International Studies from the United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado (1982) and a Master of Arts in Management from Webster University, St. Louis, Missouri (1987). In 2011, he retired as a colonel from the United States Air Force with 28+ years of active service. During his military career, Wil had stateside assignments in Alabama, Kansas, Illinois, Washington, D.C. and multiple assignments to Germany, where he became fluent in the language. Another foreign assignment was to the Republic of Korea where he began learning that language. During his military service, Wil graduated from the General & Admiral’s Staff Officer course at the German Federal Armed Forces Academy, Hamburg (1999) and the US Air Force, Air University Air War College, Montgomery, Alabama (2001).

Since his military retirement Wil is employed in the private sector. He, his wife, Hanna, and her son Sam enjoy traveling, participating in outdoor activities, attending Clan Urquhart and family functions where they are joined by Wil’s adult stepson,Nick.

In October, 2012, Wil inherited the Urquhart chiefship on the death of his father, Kenneth, the well loved 27th Chief.

‘Ochanachar Mor’, the 28th Chief of Clan Urquhart, is a member of the standing Council of Scottish Chiefs. He is also a member of the Society of the Cincinnati, the Society of Scottish Armigers, and is president of the Clan Urquhart Association as well as a non-voting member of the Clan Urquhart Foundation.

His passions are spending time with his family, assisting others in developing their Christian faith, and promoting Clan Urquhart’s global heritage and projects. His hobbies include hiking, coaching youth soccer, and improving his piping and foreign language skills. He and his family look forward to meeting Urquhart kinfolk at coming events.

The Urquhart’s hereditary Scottish seat is Castle Craig, the old Urquhart stronghold on the Cromarty Firth, northeast of Inverness. He also holds the lands of Urchard overlooking Loch Meikle in Glen Urquhart.
