Scotland in the Park - Brisbane

On 20 July, the Elliot Clan Society had its first clan stand at an event in Queensland. The Scottish Clans Congress Queensland organised a full day program of Highland dancing, pipe bands and other entertainment. We were one of five clans which had stands at the event, together with about 30 merchandise and food stands - including one that sold haggis on a bun (which sold out very quickly!).

We talked with several society members, some potential members, and a lot of non-Elliots. They were keen to look at their family names and tartans in the reference books and old maps that we had on the stand, and the Elliot bookmarks that we made for the occasion were quite popular.

It was a very enjoyable day, and it raised the profile of our clan society among the several thousand people who attended the event.

The picture below shows the stand. The banner was made by our President.

Book for Sale

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.
