It promotes and sponsors state, regional, national and international gatherings of the Boyd family. It promotes and perpetuates Scottish heritage, customs and traditions. Membership is open to those researching Boyd genealogy and those interested in Scottish heritage.


House of Boyd to be present at the 
700th Anniversary Celebration 
of the
Battle of Bannockburn
Bannockburn, Scotland
June 28, 29, 30 2014

This is a special event that draws us home to Scotland.  The Battle of Bannockburn is one of Scotland's most famous battles.  Robert Boyd was one of Robert the Bruce's Commanders in this battle.  We have been invited to hold a pitch in the clan village over this momentous weekend.  

Mike Boyd, our Clan Historian, will be traveling from Australia to host our pitch.  We need others to step forward to assist at the tent over these three days.  Please contact any of the Executive Board members to volunteer to help us pull this together.
  
Please plan on joining us!  Come be a part of History!

More information on the celebration will be found on the event's site
