MacIntyre Ceilidh Change as of June 22

In order to accommodate more people, the MacIntyre Ceilidh has been moved to the Gathering Halls in Oban, a larger but more expensive venue. Thus, the cost for all folks registering starting today is increased to match the cost the original folks paid for the ceilidh + the shuttle to Taynuilt. The shuttle bus is now canceled. If you are one of the original folks who registered for the Ceilidh, your registration is fine as it stands.

New! Combined Tour: Duncan Ban and Glencoe

Two existing tours, Guided Tour Focused on Duncan Ban MacIntyre by Àdhamh Ó Broin and the Coach Tour to Glencoe, did not have sufficient registrations to fill a bus individually. Instead of cancelling the tours, we have combined them into a single tour offering the highlights of both, led by the inimitable Àdhamh Ó Broin. Luckily for all of us, the tours were on the same day, at the same time, and meeting at the same place, so combining them into a single tour was easy peasy.

If you are already registered for one of the two aforementioned tours,  no worries — stay registered in your original tour and we will make sure you get on the Combined Tour bus on the day of the tour.

If you are not registered for either tour but want to register for the new Combined Tour, you can register here.

Registration for Other Events

We have three categories of events at the moment:

  1. Those events that still have openings, for which we don’t need much warning as to the final numbers because the infrastructure is in place to handle as many people as sign up (such as dinners, the Games, Glenoe, etc.). Thus, we are opening these events up to registration until Wednesday, June 27, at midnight UTC time zone, although individual events may well close sooner if they fill up.
  2. Those events that still have openings, but we need an accurate count of participants soon in order to finalize the infrastructure (most tours). These events will stay open only until Wednesday, June 6, at midnight UTC time zone, although again, individual events could close sooner if they fill up.
  3. Those events that are truly full but we are still trying to conjure more seat (hikes, ceilichs, boat tours, After Party). Those events will remain closed until we figure out if we can pull a rabbit out of a hat. If we are able to fit in more people, we will email those of you already on the wait list to give you a brief chance first. If there are still seats open after the wait list has a chance to register, we will briefly open registration to the public.

Here are the events for each category above:

1. Go forth and register between now and Wednesday, June 27, at midnight UTC time zone:

  • Registration Event (required for everyone before registering for other events)
  • DNA and Family Group Reunion
  • Welcome Reception
  • Grand Banquet
  • Highland Games (except for the Games After Party) plus separate registration for the shuttle from Oban to Taynuilt
  • Glenoe: all events, round trip shuttle from Oban to Taynuilt, and round trip boat from Taynuilt to Glenoe (cannot be reached by auto)

2. Go forth and register between now and Wednesday, June 6, at midnight UTC time zone, but some of these are getting close to full, so don’t dawdle:

  • Wednesday’s Tour with Brigadier John Macfarlane
  • MacIntyre Country North
  • Thursday’s Tour with Brigadier John Macfarlane
  • Auchindrain Township with Àdhamh Ó Broin
  • MacIntyre Country East
  • New–see above! Combined Tour: Duncan Ban and Glencoe, with Àdhamh Ó Broin
  • Public Talks with Àdhamh Ó Broin

3. Those events that are full and are still closed for the moment, with a possibility of opening to the wait list first, and perhaps to others after the wait list has a chance to register:

  • Both ceilidhs
  • All three boat tours
  • All hikes to the Stone of the White Calf
  • Games After Party
  • Hike to the Summit of Cruachan

Registration and some ticket sales are open!

Perle Hotel
Everyone is of course welcome to find accomodations on their own. However, we have reserved a block of rooms at the Perle Hotel, a luxury hotel in downtown Oban:

  • The Perle is offering us a 15% discount on our bookings. Room prices (all prices in GBP) are differentiated by room type; i.e., there will not be a “lottery” for the rooms as previously announced. Instead, you can book whatever room type suits your needs. Room prices after the 15% discount:
    • Standard Double Room, no view:  £177.65
    • Double Room with view:  £194.65
    • Superior Room:  £203.15
    • Superior Room with view:  £220.15
    • Junior Suite:  £237.15
    • Suites:  £254.15
  • You can book directly with the hotel. Rooms are now available in their system, but this means that the general public will also be able to book them. Thus, you should jump on reserving a room as soon as possible. You can book by going to https://app.thebookingbutton.com/properties/PerleObandirect and using the discount code “Macintyre” 

Cultural Programs

There will be cultural programs running at the Argyll Gathering Halls throughout the week. See   https://register.macintyregathering.com/cultural-programs/ for a tentative discussion of what might be offered. You will not need to register ahead for these programs, since you can pay at the door.

Events
Registration for individual events below are open. You can read a detailed description of each event by clicking to expand the text. However, please be aware that we might need to change any of these events because we can’t predict what the demand will be – as the Gathering is run by volunteers and on behalf of a charity, we are not looking to make a profit but we can’t afford to make a loss. We will do our very best to provide everything as described but ask for your understanding if something needs to be changed.

Please read the extra info about events and how to buy tickets here

You will need to be logged in to purchase tickets to events. Your account would have been created when you registered. Please locate the email with your username and password and use that information to log in. Also, as you add events to your cart, you will need to refresh the Buy Tickets page each time you return to it if you want the Cart on the right to be updated. Alternately, just click on the Buy Tickets link at the top of the page, rather than just using your browser’s Back button. 

Meals
If a meal or food is included in an event, that is noted in the event description; otherwise, assume that you will be on your own for meals.

Good to Know
A new page has been added — Please Read! — with information that might make your trip more enjoyable. Please check back often, as we will add more information as it occurs to us.
