Scottish Interest Group


Whilst the majority of our large group are residents of New Zealand,  others are located in Scotland, Canada and Australia.  

A sub-group has ancestral ties with Nova Scotia in Canada, being descended from Scottish Highlanders who emigrated there before a second migration to New Zealand.
