It is with great sadness we announce the death of the Hon Elizabeth Fairbairn, past President of Clan Mackay Society, who passed away peacefully on Thursday 18th March after a very short period in hospital. Our condolences are with her three daughters, Charlotte, Anna and Francesca and their families. 

Elizabeth was a lady of great charm and dignity who carried out her duties for Clan Mackay with quiet effectiveness and as a huge support to her late brother Hugh and more recently to her nephew, Aeneas, Lord Reay as he took on the role of Clan Chief. She will be sadly missed.


It is hoped there will be a reason to celebrate her life at a later date.  Elizabeth had many interests and filled prominent positions in Edinburgh particularly in the worlds of the Arts, should you wish to recognise her life and work donations should be made to a particular love of hers Live Music Now - Scotland :https://www.justgiving.com/livemusicnowscotland

In today’s challenging times there is little more important than family and our website celebrates and honours the extended Mackay family which stretches to all parts of the world.
