We offer two types of membership – digital and print.

For just £5, members receive a topical and interesting e-magazine “The Gunn Herald” three times per year. Pay with Card or Paypal

Print membership is exactly the same as digital except members receive a physical copy of the magazine by mail. Print membership costs £20 per year for UK members and £25 per year for international members.

Click “Check Out As A Guest” to pay with your Card if you do not have or want a Paypal Account.

Members and their immediate family are also entitled to attend the various Clan Gunn 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 the more extensive Genealogy service (see menu).

Any current postal members wishing to change membership type should do so by emailing the Membership Team at

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 (or their derivatives) 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 on the names below as they have been spelled differently and recorded phonetically over the Centuries. A longer explaination of the derivatives can be found on our history page


Joining couldn’t be easier. You can join online using your Credit/Debit card OR you can use PayPal (which will convert to your local currency). While our card transactions are processed by PayPal, you do not need a PayPal account to use the service.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.
