MacFarlane: A Poem by Rebecca Lever

Rebecca Lever is a proud MacFarlane on her 101-year old grandmother's side. Recently Rebecca, traveled with her husband to the MacFarlane homelands of Loch Lomond to share her heritage and family history with him. The trip inspired her to write "MacFarlane", a Clan MacFarlane poem that beautifully captures the essence of our clan spirit. In these verses, she paints a vivid picture of a clanswoman,  buried on a remote island, her fate intertwined with a harsh and unfeeling world. The verses are a testament to the endurance of the MacFarlane legacy. Lever's words resonate with the clan's history, and through her verse, we honour the resilience of our ancestors and pay tribute to their memory.
