Parade with your Clan: Join the Clan March at the head of our 150th Parade

Calling all Scotch Colony Clans!

Grab your family and all the cousins and march with pride under your clan banner in the Scotch Colony 150th Parade on Saturday 19 August. Line up at 10AM on the Kincardine Road before the junction with the Manse Hill Road; Parade at 10:30.

Thanks to the Gathering of the Scots for lending us the clan banners. If your clan isn’t listed, create your own. See the list of available clan banners below.

Contact Shelley at (506) 273-4437 or email us:

See the proposed Parade Map.
The Clan March should be about a third of a mile/half a kilometer. We recommend parking near the Events Field and walking down to the Parade starting point.

Bring comfortable shoes, sun protection, sunglasses hat, bug spray, (you’ll want a chair for the afternoon). A splash of your clan tartan would be nice to show.

Please share.

Video above is from the Gathering of the Scots this past, (chilly) June with four massed pipe bands.

Join Our Scotch Colony Parade!

Map updated 17 August 2023 with more event times.

I extended the parade route beyond the Events Field, where the judges will be. Please continue past all viewers and pull ahead to let those behind you finish. There are several empty driveways on Kincardine Road where floats and vehicles can turn around.

BTW, I’ve added road closures to Google Maps.

Marchers should line up on Kincardine Road, not Manse Hill Road. See the new map version below. The Kincardine Road lineup location should be safer than dodging traffic on Manse Hill Road. However please be careful of traffic.

Please check back for any additional updates.

Businesses, groups, clans, families, and individuals,
Join our parade of marchers, vehicles, and floats on
Saturday 19 August 2023:
9:30 AM–Kincardine Road, to Burns Hall, closes to through traffic.
10:00 AM–Line up on the south side of Kincardine Road at Burns Hall.
10:30 AM–Parade begins.

The parade is about 1k starting at Burns Hall.
The Clan March should be about a third of a mile/half a kilometer.

Parade Map version 081723-1. Check back for any updates.

Even if you haven’t signed up for the parade, come on up and we’ll slot you in 🙂

Scotch Colony Architecture [draft post]

The History, Character, & Architecture of Kincardine, Bon Accord, Upper Kintore & Lower Kintore

by L. Darlene Morton
April 1975 (unpublished manuscript; Published electronically 2023)

[This web version is under construction. Here’s a link to photos of the complete document: images of Darlene Morton’s original typed document including all illustrations, drawings of interior layouts, and original photographs of the buildings]


I wish to thank my mother, Kathleen Morton for providing me with most of the information about Kincardine, my father, Lloyd Morton for the transportation, Jim Barclay for the information about Upper and Lower Kintore, and Katherine Warman for that of Bon Accord.

Also I would like to thank all of the people of the Colony who were so helpful, my aunt, Ruby Phillips for the use of her camera, my brother-in-law, Charlie Cameron for taking some of the pictures, the Provincial Archives for developing some, and Vera Guitard for typing the project.

Potato harvests in Kincardine – Andrew Ellis, Mary Chapman, & Annie Ellis.

History of the Scotch Colony

Scotch Colony lot map (see also Crown Land Grant Map Viewer for a slightly different version)

The Free Grants Act of 1872 passed by the New Brunswick government, provided for the settlement of some of the Crown Lands of New Brunswick through the granting of free tracts of land to any individual or groups of immigrants who agreed to the provisions of the Act.

Our Google Calendar

The Scotch Colony, New Brunswick, Canada, is located in the Atlantic Time Zone
(Eastern Time Zone folks are an hour behind–that means if an event is listed at 11:00 AM Atlantic it is at 10:00 AM Eastern) So all you U.S. cousins: don’t be late 🙂

150th Maps

Updated 17 August 2023: more details on weekend events.

I’ve tried to add our venues, historic buildings, and road-closing information directly to Google Maps.

We changed the lineup location for parade and clan marchers. Marchers now line up on Kincardine Road before the junction with Manse Hill Road. Watch for traffic!

Saturday visitors: please use Manse Hill Road to drive to the Events Field and parade parking. This will avoid the parade lineup on Kincardine Road. Watch for children! See map below.

The Parade is Saturday 19th August 2023, 10:30 AM Atlantic Time

This is the civic address to the Event’s Field and parade parking:
260 Kincardine Road, Kincardine, NB E7H 2K5

Here’s a Google Maps link to the Events Field. Just fill in your location for directions (We’re located in Perth Parish in Southern Victoria County):,-67.6495/@46.640108,-67.649501,1132m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!4m1!3e0?entry=ttu

Sign up to march with your clan at the head of our parade.

Caution: When driving to/from Upper Kintore to/from Kincardine, avoid the Bon Accord Cross Road. There are reports of flooding and washouts. (Google Maps seems to prefer this route.) Use Kintore Road instead.
