About Lang Syne

Lang Syne Publishers Ltd, established in 1978, is Scotland's leading independent publisher

Our titles are sold through bookshops,
visitor centres, museums and direct to the public.


Lang Syne have been specialising in
clan products for many years.

We have arguably the largest range of Scottish and Irish clan books anywhere in the world. Our clan mini-books are small enough to be read easily, light enough to be carried, well written and researched enough to be authoritative and fun enough for every member of each clan to have as a keepsake.

What is a clan?

Wikipedia gives the definition of clans as 'a group of people united by actual or perceived kinship and descent'.
