A Story Of A Highland Feud And Our Part In Bringing Peace To The Clans
If you know any Scottish history you know the story of the Massacre at Glencoe. If you don't you can read about it here and here. It was horrific and "under Scots law there was a special category of murder, known as "murder under trust", which was considered to be even more heinous than ordinary murder."
I've mentioned before that my heritage is Scottish, and that as McElraths we are part of the MacIlwraiths, who are a sept clan to the MacDonalds. Our clan originated on the Isle of Skye and were clan bards to MacDonald of Sleat for many generations.
Tim has Scottish heritage as well, through his mother, who is a Campbell on her mother's side.
This makes for many interesting conversations with folks at Scottish festivals, and celtic stores. A man working at the Scotland House store in Williamsburg, Virginia said "Your not married? To each other!?"
We like to say that we are bringing healing and peace to the clans.
Yesterday, when Rachel and I were out, I found this tea cup and bought it right away.
Now I must find a MacDonald tea cup as well!
