Clan 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.

2017 Guest of Honor

Robin Neill Lochnell Malcolm,
19th Laird of Poltalloch and Hereditary Chief of Clan MacCallum/Malcolm

Robin Neill Lochnell Malcolm, 19th Laird of Poltalloch and Hereditary Chief of Clan MacCallum/Malcolm was born in Edinburgh on February 11, 1934. In 1962 he married the late Susan Freeman (1939-2004). They have two sons and two daughters.

From 1940 to 1944 he and his sister Bridget lived in America. Firstly in California with distant relatives (see “Notable” Robert Malcolm) then in Washington DC. He attended 6 different schools in 7 years! He was educated at Eton and the North of Scotland College of Agriculture. As for farming, he raises cattle and sheep on the 5,000 acre Poltalloch estate. In agri-politics, Robin has been active both locally and nationally. In local government, for 15 years he was a member of Argyle and Bute Council where he has served as a Justice of the Peace and Vice Lord Lieutenant.

Since his school days he was involved with the Oban Games, raising from errand boy to Senior Steward. He even competed in the sprint relay and tug of war, with limited success! Robin has been the Honored Guest at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in 2005 and again in 2012.

In 2010 he married Patricia Currie. They live in the 12th century Duntrune Castle overlooking Loch Crinan with a well-authenticated ghost for company.
