Over 60 Years of Cultural Education

If you are Scottish, of Scottish descent, or you just like kilts and bagpipes, you are invited to join The Scottish Society of Dallas. We generally meet on the third Sunday of the month, September through May. The June meeting is on the fourth Sunday, because Fathers Day is the third. Check the meeting schedule page to be sure and/or feel free to Send Email to the webmaster for further information. There are no meetings in July or August -- it's an excellent time to visit Scotland!

Our next meeting is Sunday, February 18, 2024 at 2:00pm.

The meeting will be held at the following location:

Haggard Library
Genealogy Program Room
2501 Coit Road
Plano, TX 75075
(Located between Park and Parker roads.)

History and Purpose

Now in our 61st year of operation, The Scottish Society of Dallas was organized at the Salado Gathering of the Clans, in Salado, TX in the fall of 1963. The original name was "Scottish Clans of North Texas, in Dallas, Texas". The organizers were Jean Luch, Bill Bell, Bill McRight, and others.

Over the years the Society has supported the Dallas Highland Games held at Samuel Park, the International Bazaar at Dallas City Hall, the Texas Scottish Festival & Highland Games in Arlington, and the State Fair of Texas.

The purpose of the Society is to share and further Scottish culture.

Other Society activities involve participation in the North Texas Irish Fest at Fair Park, Dallas (early March), the Sherman Celtic Festival in Sherman (late March), the Texas Scottish Festival and Highland Games in Decatur (May), the Plano International Fest (October) and finally the Gathering of the Clans and Highland Games in Salado, TX (November). Click here for additional information on these and other Society activities/events.

In addition to the regularly scheduled activities listed above, we participate in multi-cultural events for schools, civic organizations, retirement centers and the like. We can bring a contingent of members (with the gents attired in kilts, of course) to your organization's meeting or event to simply represent Scotland or we can present a more formal program about Scotland. We can talk about Scottish culture and history or the impact of Scottish immigrants on North Texas; on our state as a whole; and our nation. When arrangements are made far enough in advance, our program can include demonstrations of traditional Highland dances, courtesy of the Dallas Highland Dancers. If you'd like us to participate in your event, send us an email and let us know what you have planned and/or what you'd like to accomplish with your program.
