Message & Welcome from our President

Dave "Ragnar" Ziemer

Greetings from all the members of CGSNA!

     On our official website, you can find lots of useful information about the history of Gunn, as well as links to all things Scottish! Don't despair if your last name doesn't happen to be Gunn. You might just have a name in your lineage that is a sept of Clan Gunn. A sept is a surname that is associated with our clan. Our site has a list of those names, as well as a list of Clan officers, Genealogists & Commissioners in your region that you can contact to help with any questions you might have. Feel free to browse our site and its associated links to your hearts content. From our Clan store, to the historical information, you never know what you may find! Check back with us on a regular basis to find out what's new with the Gunns.


     Clan Gunn attends a multitude of Highland Games, as well as other Celtic & cultural events throughout North America. We would love for you to come & visit us. If you have never been to a Highland game, you should really put it on your list of things to do. You won't be disappointed! You can contact the Commissioner nearest you, or any of our officers, for more info on events in your area. Please see the Games listing link below to find an event to attend in your area.


     Clan Gunn is Family! Whether you are Gunn by name, sept or just like to be around the friendliest of people, you've found a home!

The AGM to come and also will be put on the website. A good time was had by all!!!!

  We thank the Chief, Iain Gunn of Gunn, his beautiful wife Buntie, their son-John, and John's wife-Sarah, for attending and for all they contributed. It was greatly appreciated and we were honored to have them.
