McLeod Clan

November 20, 2022

My house is just a short walk from the Bendigo Botanic Gardens, so most days I end my walk with a quick stroll through these beautiful gardens. Perhaps I’m more focused on the plants when I visit, but this week I saw the cairn (below) and was really surprised that I hadn’t seen it previously. The cairn is a memorial to the Clan MacLeod Reunion which was held in Bendigo in 1999.

I have MacLeods in my family tree, but they are very distantly related, and as yet I haven’t done any research on them. This connection made me keen to stop and read the plaque. Without that connection I still would have found the cairn interesting, so I hope that anyone reading this shares my interest.

The Clan MacLeod
Friendship Cairn

The upper section of this cairn
contains stones from all over the world,
brought by clanfolk who attended the
’99 Clan MacLeod World Reunion,
held in Bendigo from April 28th to May 2nd 1999.
This cairn is a lasting memorial to
the first international gathering of
Clan McLeod in the Southern Hemisphere
