In an unbroken line for close to 750 years old castle lachlan takes us back to the days of the Kingdoms of the Gael where in Ireland, Western Scotland and the Isles our ancestors lived by the two thousand year old clan values and communal culture of the Celts.
For this generation the goal of the Save Old Castle Lachlan Fund is to preserve old castle lachlan as an ancient Scottish structure of national importance and to preserve the history and heritage of the clan.

A feasibility study and conservation report on old castle lachlan by our sister Lachlan Trust in Scotland in conjunction with Historic Scotland has been completed; a project of this size will require to raise major funding of  1.5 million   over the next 7 to 10 years. Old castle lachlan is part of the larger vision of preserving the heritage of a clan and developing the Strathlachlan area in Argyll as an "ancestral tourist" destination while respecting its natural beauty and historic importance.

By April 2013 we have been granted funds of
576,000 from  the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland. Now we can protect the castle for further deterioration and we hope to start the work of preservation in the summer of 2013.
To secure future funding from national bodies an important factor is that we continue to demonstrate  strong interest and  financial support from the descendants of emigrant Scots.
The Lachlan Trust of Canada program will meet this need for present and future generations.  

Help to save the old castle and preserve your own family history for future generations.
