Clan MacLaren is most sad to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our beloved Chief Donald MacLaren of MacLaren and Auchleskine on July 22, 2023. Donald was our Chief for 57 years, and at the time of his passing he was the Convener of the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs, as well as Chief of Clan MacLaren. He was a great man and gone far too soon. He epitomized our Clan motto “Ab Origine Fidus”, or Faithful from the Beginning. One last “Creag an Tuirc” Donald. May you rest in gentle peace.

The London Times carried a lovely obituary for Chief Donald. You can read that on the Clan MacLaren Society of North America website.
