Clan Sempill- discovering Scottish family heritage first-hand...
Hi, all- I am putting together a trip to Scotland with my 11yr old child. We are both fascinated by our family history and wish to explore further. As Semples (Sempills) here in the States, we naturally chose Scotland as our first destination. We figure to visit in July.
In researching, I have seen that Scottish clan gatherings are not uncommon. I have scoured for any hint of a gathering for clan Sempill, but so far- nada... nothing with which to solidify travel arrangements. I'm also looking at exploring areas that may be of significance to the Sempill clan's name. Maybe off the beaten path?
Any suggestions or pointers to clan Sempill festivals, events, or gatherings would be most helpful...
