A group of about 20 Scots, and maybe-Scots, gathered at the Kingaroy Library on Thursday morning to explore the possibility of forming a Scottish cultural group in the South Burnett.

The get-together – complete with Scotch Finger biscuits – was organised by Wooroolin resident Lynnsay Fryer who is leader of Clan MacKinnon in Australia.

He was joined at the microphone by David Brand, from Nanango, a member of Clan MacLachlan; and piper Ross Page.

Lynnsay said a Scottish cultural group could explore activities such as music, dancing, cooking and all the Scottish connections to the South Burnett.

Events such as Burns Night and Hogmanay could also be celebrated.

Information about kilts, tartans, sporrans and the various clans was shared with the audience.

Anyone who is interested in being part of a Scottish group should contact Lynnsay on 0428-960-480.

David Brand shared information about different clans and different tartans
