The purpose of this group is to provide communication between the members of the various Clan Gunn Societies around the world, and to offer an online meeting place for those of descent from the family of Gunn or any of it's septs. We hope to provide an online cross road where the "family" can meet and get to know each other and to keep alive the spirit of the Clan Gunn family.  At present the Gunns have four formal Clan Societies around the world. The parent Society is the Clan Gunn Society-UK. There are also Societies in Nova Scotia, New Zealand and North America. This group has been started and is maintained by members of the North American Society, but is intended for the use and enjoyment of the members of all the other Societies as well as any other Gunns (Septs and descendants) around the world.

X Marks The Scot - A Kilt Forum:  an international community of kilt wearers and those who encourage the wearing of kilts.  Kilts are a man's garment and it is our goal to promote the wearing of the kilt in more than just the "Highland Games" situation. This is not a forum for men looking to wear womens clothing nor is it a forum for other types of men's un-bifurbricated garments. If you want to know more about kilts then you have come to the right place!  You do not have to be Scottish to post here or to wear a kilt. The name of this forum was chosen a while ago for different purposes and yet this website has evolved into what it is today. Please do not let the name deter you from posting.
