Originally founded as the Scottish Clans of North Texas about 25 years ago, our purpose was to bring together native Scots and people of Scottish ancestry for friendship and fellowship, as well as to advance the public knowledge of Scottish Culture, Heritage and History. In 2015, we reorganized as the Cowtown Scottish Society to:

1) Accent our geographic location, generally speaking, in Fort Worth, Texas and surrounding counties;

2) Revitalize our efforts to enjoy our Scottish heritage by having as many as eight activities and gatherings a year. These activities will include our annual St. Andrew's Night Celebration (Nov), Christmas Party (Dec), the Robert Burns Memorial Dinner (Jan) and participation in the Texas Scottish Festival in Decatur (May). In addition, we will promote as many as four 'Scottish Invasions' at area restaurants to join enjoy good food, commeraderie and music;

3) Contribute to those who are less fortunate, i.e. providing Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children;

4) Extending our Scottish culture to the general public, i.e. hosting a genealogy tent at the Texas Scottish Festival in May.

Oh! Aye! Let's don't forget the opportunites to wear our Clan Brooches, Kilts, Tartans, Bonnets, Scian Dubhs and Aye, even our Texas Boots!
