are one of the oldest and largest
Clans in the Highlands, generally
acknowledged as having been founded in the 11th Century.
Their skill in battle was unequaled, and their influence in Scottish history unmatched.
There are 4 distinct "branches" of Campbells: Campbell of Argyll, Campbell of
Breadalbane, Campbell of Cawdor, and Campbell of Loudon.
The name "CAMPBELL" originated (allegedly) from the Gaelic "Cam Beul"
(Curved Mouth), a nickname given to Dugald of Lochawe (beloved grandfather of
the Clan Chief), who had a charming way of talking out of one side of his mouth!
Dugald was so cherished by his family, they decided to use his nickname as their
Clan name, even prefering it over the original "Argyll".
I've been a proud member of The Clan Campbell Society my entire life.
I even kept my maiden name after I married, all the better to
honor my proud Scottish roots.

Every year I
attending the Ohio
Scottish Games, which are held in
Oberlin, Ohio during the last weekend in June. It's always a wonderful experience,
(although it's often a little too warm for this American-Scot's liking).
There's just nothing quite like hearing the swell of the Bagpipes and seeing
a man proudly wearing the Kilt, to make one's heart 'homesick' for the Motherland.

never saw these coming!
|A Gaelic Blessing!
"May ye always feel the sunshine
and take time to taste the rain.
May your friends be true and caring
and may ye be the same.
May your heart be filled with kindness
and the seeds of wisdom grow.
May ye seek for truth and beauty
and when ye find it, may ye know."
