Creag Dhubh is published in spring each year and is available to all members of the Clan Macpherson Association throughout the world.

As well as a message from Cluny, the Clan Chief, one from the Association Chairman, and information about the next Gathering in Badenoch, Creag Dhubh contains the following:

The Editor is also delighted to receive all kinds of news from individual members. As an association we have a tremendous opportunity for positive networking given extra impetus by the genetic connections that we have with each other and our strong roots (however far back) in the Highlands of Scotland. What makes Creag Dhubh interesting is not just the historic and academic content, but the news about 'us', the clansfolk across the globe.

So do send the Editor personal news about births, engagements, marriages, deaths, career moves and any other general news about what Macphersons and their relatives are doing, achieving or even enduring.

When sending in articles, electronic versions make life easier, but please provide any pictures as separate files, rather than embedded in the documents. The editor can use documents in ASCII text files, Word, RTF or PDF.

Advertising is an important way of keeping costs down as well as adding interest. The adverts in Creag Dhubh are often as interesting as the articles as we discover sources of kilts, books, whisky and other goods and services. The circulation of the magazine is worldwide to groups of people with useful spending power, so please could you recommend Creag Dhubh to possible advertisers? Anyone wishing to advertise should contact the editor at the email address below.

All material for the next edition should reach the editor, Shannon Macpherson, by the 31st October at:
Kanongo Estate
PO Box 250
Namitete, Malawi
