We are looking forward to our 179th Lonach which will be held on the 4th Saturday in August 2022!
The Lonach Highland and Friendly Society was founded in 1823 by Sir Charles Forbes,
1st Baronet of Newe and Edinglassie (1773-1849).
Membership is drawn from the inhabitants of Strathdon, who continue to fulfil the society’s original mission of
preserving Highland dress and “supporting loyal, peaceful, and manly conduct; and the promotion of
social and benevolent feelings among the inhabitants of the district.”
