His Grace,The 12th Duke of Atholl, Bruce Murray became Chief of Clan Murray in 2012. Not only is he the clan's Chief, but he commands Europe's only private army, the Atholl Highlanders.
Last year, he and the Atholl Highlanders visited the Massachusets town of Athol to help celebrate the 250th anniversary of its incorporation. One of its founders was the Second Duke of Atholl, who gave it its present name.
When not taking part in his ceremonial duties, he is a businessman in South Africa like his father,John Murray, The 11th Duke of Atholl. The Chief's wife is Duchess Charmaine and he has three children, Michael, David and Nicole.
The Murray Clan Society of North America held its 2013 Annual General Meeting at the Central Florida Scottish Highland Games in Winter Springs, Florida.
Clan Murray was the Honored Clan for this event and Hal Murray, Lieutenant to the Chief for the U.S., was the Honored Guest.

Several needed to set up and man tents at games and festivals and to recruit new members in their states.
We need all we can get to celebrate the Murray heritage by helping man clan tents, marching in parades, attending Scottish events. Dressing Scottish is optional but fun!
