In days of old, allegiance to a Clan was based upon a feudal system whereby the clan provided protection in exchange for regular donations of grain, livestock and rent. Occasionally, the Chief would call up Clan Members to provide some muscle to help settle disputes with other clans or for a common cause. Fortunately, times have moved on and it is now easier to join Clan Farquharson UK than ever before.

So, we invite you to browse the various membership categories below and then click through to subscribe to the category of your choice.

We also recognise and appreciate the dedication of our friends from outside the UK who regularly travel to Scotland to attend Clan Farquharson’s annual Gathering. If these friends have an active membership of the Clan Farquharson Society in their respective territory, there is no need for them to purchase an additional UK membership to attend the Gathering. We already enjoy closer ties and communication with our affiliated societies internationally and will be developing even closer exchange in the future. That said, anyone with a family connection or interest-link to Clan Farquharson is welcome to subscribe to a UK Membership if they choose. 

Please note that any initial subscriptions made late in the year (September-December) will remain valid until the 31st December of the following year.


Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to Clan Farquharson UK.
