* * * Welcome to the official website of The Robert Mackay Clan. * * *

This website is divided into two main parts.

The first part of the website is it's primary focus and deals with three main families and other families that intermarried with them. Our message boards and chat room are also found here.

The second part of the website deals with general information either on the Clan Mackay itself or different aspects of Scottish Gaelic and Highland culture or general information surrounding the areas where some of our families settled as well Civil War information and other links that visitors may be interested in. Some info. on our ancestors may be found here but the focus in these areas isn't directly on the families themselves as it is in the first part.

Below the Celtic Bar image are some special website extras for your enjoyment.

If you are aware of any website which could be linked to any of the sections within this website please let me know and I'll add the link to the appropriate section.

This website utilises Southern orthography wherever possible.
