** A new membership option is now available. £5 per annum for members who do not wish for a physical copy of The Gunn Herald. Those members will still be able to view the Herald via electronic means through their membership on the website and enjoy the other benefits of membership.
Any current members wishing to change membership type should do so before their renewal date. Please remember to cancel your current recurring subscription in Paypal ( for guide click here ) before signing up for the new type of membership.
New e-memberships will not receive a postal welcome pack, but will receive email confirmation and an electronic pack. This contains larger files that may not arrive on some email systems, so if you have not received your e-welcome pack within a week please email firstname.lastname@example.org **
For just £16 per annum for UK addresses, and £19 per annum for non-UK addresses, members receive our topical and interesting colour magazine “The Gunn Herald” three times / year. Members and their immediate family are also entitled to attend the various Clan events held throughout the year, giving them the opportunity to meet others in their wider Gunn family. Additionally members are allowed free access to the Clan genealogy records both directly at the Heritage Centre and through our Clan Genealogist, thus allowing access to the very considerable amount of research already carried out by those in the Clan.
We welcome members of all ages, from all places! Whether you’re already an expert in family history or just starting out, the Clan Gunn Society is a great way to meet other like-minded people, to share research and to bring your family history alive.
If you bear the name Gunn, or any one of the sept names historically associated with Clan Gunn by birthright or by marriage, or if your ancestors bore one of those names, you are very welcome to join the Society.
The sept or branch names derive mainly from the five sons of Gunn of Ulbster, Chief of Clan Gunn and Crowner of Caithness. They include the following but there are many further variations;
Joining couldn’t be easier. You can join online using PayPal (which will convert to your local currency) or, if you prefer, you can join the society by Standing Order or Cheque (Pounds Sterling only). Standing Orders will attract a discount of £1 per annum (does not apply to £5 membership option). If you wish to download an application form and/or set up a standing order please click on the following links:
Both forms should be sent to the membership secretary at the address listed on the Application Form
Alternatively if you would like to join online right now then please select the appropriate box below and we will be delighted to welcome you. Paypal will convert your local currency. Life Member options also available further down this page
Please note that regrettably we can only accept Pound Sterling cheques and Standing Orders. We do therefore recommend PayPal for non-UK residents who do not have access to a GBP bank account
As a final option… the Society does also offer full life membership for a one off payment of £515 through PayPal (or £500 by sterling cheque – please see application form for details). There is also an e-Membership Life option where, as above, you do not receive a physical copy of the Herald. £200 of this membership is also sent directly to the Clan Gunn Heritage Centre.
