The Clan Parade

Edinburgh Royal Mile

The Royal Mile

One of the events at The Gathering, 2009 in Edinburgh was a parade of members of clans up the Royal Mile from Holyrood Park to Edinburgh Castle Esplanade.

The Clan Parade left Holyrood Park at 7.45 pm on Saturday July 25.  Marchers were grouped by clan, following their clan banners up the Royal Mile.  They  marched in  alphabetical order of clan.  Over 7,000 marchers were expected to take part.

The Royal Mile was lined with spectators, and it took about two hours for the whole parade to reach the castle esplanade.
