The Matheson Clan

An amalgam of Viking and Celtic stock — once one of the strongest clans in the Scottish Highlands.
Join us at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games July 9-12, 2020!


Join Us for the 2021 Matheson Clan Gathering at the 2021 Grandfather Mountain Highland Games – July 8-11, 2021!

The Grandfather Mountain Highland Games board of directors canceled the 2020 Games on April 25th after the North Carolina Governor extended prohibitions of public gatherings larger than 50 people through July 4th. With the cancellation, the Clan Matheson Gathering and Parliament will be rescheduled for next year’s games, July 8-11, 2021. Clan Matheson remains the honored clan at The 65th Annual Grandfather Mountain Highland Games to be held July 8-11, 2021 at MacRae Meadows on Grandfather Mountain near Linville, NC, USA. Visit the Clan Matheson Event page here.
*Required entry tickets for 2021 should be purchased next year (January 2021) directly from the GMHG website.

COVID-19 Coronavirus Notice:
GMHG Board of Trustees met April 25th and decided to cancel the 2020 Games. Clan Matheson will now be the honored clan for July 8-11, 2021 Games. If you have made reservations, please adjust your reservations. If you have purchased entry tickets for the Games from GMHG, they will provide option for refund, rollover to 2021, or charitable donation to their foundation. Obviously, they are hoping for rollover or donation given the financial impact that this cancellation will cause. We will update the below agenda, invite, and registration soon.

The Matheson Clan Society was established to bring together individuals from around the world who share the same Scottish Highland heritage. Through our regional branch and international events and gatherings, we have brought many of our kinsmen together. Members have access to a wealth of information, enabling them to research their genealogy or become involved in the DNA project. In addition they receive a copy of our annual Clan Newsletter and are able to contact other members worldwide as well as join our gatherings. The Clan is made up of several Branches located in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States that span several continents.

Our next International Clan Gathering is at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in North Carolina in the United States, July 8-11, 2021. All Mathesons/Mathiesons/Mathisons and other variations of the name and supporters of Clan Matheson are invited by the Chief to our 2021 International Clan Gathering and Parliament.
