CORE VALUES

Values

Every organisation should have a set of core-values that serve as a reference to their team and members in behavioural and operational decision-making as the activity develops. Our Core Values derive from the motto of Clan Farquharson "Fide et Fortitudine":

  • FIDELITY

This is the backbone of clan culture, from the early days when clans people would pledge their allegiance by an oath of fealty to their Laird, to the present day where we continue to show loyalty to the Clan Chief, to each other and to our values. Fidelity provides cohesion as a group and faith in our purpose. 

  • FORTITUDE

Hand in hand with fidelity, Fortitude has been central to Clan Farquharson’s evolution. Not only are we stronger together than the sum of our parts but Fortitude is also found in our individual strength of character, our determination to succeed and our clan’s resilience both past and future.
