The Clan MacMillan International Centre is the product of contributions of funding and efforts of MacMillans from around the world. For instance, the steps to the Centre entrance were laid by Chief George.
The Clan Centre was inspired and opened in 1991 by the chief's late wife Jane MacMillan, after whom the archive room in the Centre is now named.
Visit the Clan Centre and Chief George MacMillan.
The Clan Centre is located on Finlaystone Estate in Langbank, Scotland. It is in the same building as the Visitor Centre. Members of Clan MacMillan International have free entry to Finlaystone except when the estate is holding special events, but other MacMillans and Sept-members are expected to pay the usual estate entry charges. See a page on the Finlaystone Estate website listing these charges, and directions for finding the estate - which is close to Glasgow Airport.
Clan MacMillan Memorial Wall
The Clan MacMillan Garden, at the back of the Clan Centre, is bounded by a large wall upon which plaques in memory of clan ancestors are placed around a symbolic family tree.
The Clan MacMillan Centre Library
This consists of books, booklets, pamphlets, and copies of articles about Clan MacMillan and related subjects - plus works written by MacMillans and Sept-members. See full listings (these are incomplete drafts at present) organized by title and author. CMIC literature is available for perusal under supervision and not available to borrow.
