New Website Section - Photo Gallery

We have added a new section to the website - the photo gallery. You can access the photos by clicking on the Photos menu item above. Currently, there are 32 photos that were taken around and inside Hermitage Castle in July this year.

Hermitage Castle is situated next to Hermitage Water, in the middle of the traditional Elliot lands. The castle was the largest of the fortifications guarding the valleys in this part of the Borders. It carried out that role from the mid-1200s until it fell into disuse in the early 1600s, having had almost 400 years of very colourful history.

If you would like to add some photos to the gallery, you are very welcome to do so. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for the details.

Edited (26 September 2011): 8 photos from Redheugh and the Clan Room have now been added to the Photo Gallery section of the website.

Book for Sale

The society has copies of the book "Clan", by David P. Elliot for sale for $18. If you would like to order it, please send us an email.


The story draws heavily on the Clan system in Scotland in a very turbulent period in The Borders. It includes both contemporary and historical information which will interest those who enjoy supernatural or historical or thriller genres.

David Elliot is 57, frustrated, out of work and has three failed marriages behind him. In 2007 he goes to the Borders of Scotland hoping that his ancestry will help him find some validation of his life. Accompanied by his daughter, son-in-law and his grandson Thomas, he finds that his bloodline leads his family into terrifying danger. 700 years of history threaten those he holds dearest, as myth and reality of “The Bloodiest Valley in Britain” combine.

The corruption of the rich and powerful meets legend as Good and Evil clash over the ancient Throne of Scotland and power in the modern world. William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, Border Reivers, creatures of supernatural horror and past heroes of the Elliot Clan are all involved, as the evil Lord William de Soulis actions his plan to assume power over an unsuspecting world.

All that stands against him is a family fighting desperately to protect a child. Their only weapon is their love of family… the power of their Clan.
