Keppoch’s Regiment is a Scottish Gàidhlig cultural heritage group based in Western Oregon. We are a group of living historians based in Oregon portraying those from Clan MacDonnell of Keppoch who rose for Charles Edward Stuart in 1745. Previously known as the “Northwest Jacobites,” our goal is to commemorate this chapter in history by building historical impressions to the most accurate and realistic degree possible. We engage in a variety of events annually, ranging from historically immersive “reenactor-only” period camping events, to public festivals and Highland games where we can offer to share our knowledge, research, and historical techniques.
On this site, you can find reports from our research, event photos and historical portraits, our own personal reenactor profiles, advice on making your own highland impression, and how to get involved if you’re local. We hope you find this to be an objective and helpful resource on your own learning journey.
