clann of the wolfe

Clann of the Wolfe: 1745 Jacobite Rebellion

The Jacobite Rebellion (1745-1746), under the command of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, was the last attempt to reclaim the throne of Great Britain & Ireland. This rebellion threw Scotland into such turmoil that it effectively ended the Clan system as it had existed for centuries. As a confederation of living historians, Clann of the Wolfe comes together each year to recreate this period in history and bring it to life for ourselves and the general public.

wishing tree

Wishing tree

The tree's origins come from old traditions in Celtic nations; variations include Fairy Trees, May Trees, Votive Trees, and more. Visitors add their wishes as offerings to local saints, deities or wee folk, in hopes they can receive help or guidance towards their wish or prayer. At the end of the weekend all wishes are ceremoniously sent to the heavens with help from the Fire Sculpters, where we hope many receive help in coming true!

They honor their ancestors by celebrating the traditions and heritage that have held their families together for generations.
