Added the tartan and beer pull for the McEwan spellers, J&M

I have just read your story about your Scottish escapade at the Castle McEwen, and it brought a smile to my face. I am a Scot and a McEwan to boot (Yet another spelling) :-).

I well remember the trek involved in getting to the castle site/cairn. The rickety bridge has now seen better days; consequently there is now more leaping of burns involved to get there. Having said that, I did enjoy the walk not to mention the hospitality of the Kilfinan Hotel where we were made to feel most welcome. We also enjoyed our beer! (Well, it had our name on it!).

Although I work mainly in England I do try to get back to the hills as often as I can. My eldest son and I spent a fortnight roaming around the highlands last year and took the opportunity to visit the cairn again. He is very interested in all things Scottish and is currently undertaking some familial research.

Anyway, I don't want to bore you. This was just a quick note to thank you for bringing back some happy memories.

Best regards,
John

I am a very proud McEwan
by: Iain Craig McEwan

I am a very proud McEwan, my Father, Grand Father and Great Grand Father are from Greenock, Scotland. “As far back as I can go, they are all named John McEwan.

I have been brought up and currently live in Worcester, England. "Not my choice"!!

Reading from this web site makes me feel great, part of a strong and proud Clan. I would love to speak to any other McEwan’s. Please contact me at

I hope to go to the Castle myself someday. My Great Grandmother was Ann (called Anna) McEwan, same spelling, and came to America, to New York State, from Dundee when she was 18. It's exciting to discover family history as I have begun to research.

Shoulder Season
We love travel during shoulder seasons.
September, October, November...

They're all great for travel somewhere!
Sunny Fall days with colorful leaves in the north.
Spring is greening things up in the Southern Hemisphere.

We are just back from Canada where we had glorious weather but just the beginning of those fall colors.
