Lochleven is best known for its large encampment and considerable fighting force at Pennsic. Its members are scattered around the East, but primarily live in and around MA.


Concidere aratra in gladios est tempus (It's time we turned our plowshares into swords)


Founded at Pennsic XXVII and Chartered in Carolingia at Legends of Chivalry VI on 09/14/2001 the Village of Lochleven is situated in the lowlands of Scotland, temptingly close to the fat herds of sheep the English are foolish enough to think they own. The land underneath the Village has changed crowns several times. This does not matter so much to the residents who cheerfully do homage to whoever thinks they own their land that year.

There is no head of Lochleven or clan leader. The household is content to allow the rest of the society to think that Sir Edward Grey is the English Overlord of the Village, although Sir Edward is painfully aware that he is Not In Charge. Instead the household governs itself much like an anarcho-syndicalist commune, and sometimes like an autonomous collective depending on their mood.

A warlike, reiving sort of people, Lochleven is known for fielding a respectable fighting force, which is how most of the East Kingdom knows them. However, the Arts and Sciences and Service unto the Society are highly valued in the household, as is the less well known art of creating Schtick.

Known for passing off stolen sheep as Barony tribute, kidnapping Mr Pirate Potato Heads, the sacrificing of watermelons on Briget’s day and the weeping and wailing of mourning women at the Sustained Death Tourney, the true depths of Schtick that Lochleven brings to the society will never fully be known; they mostly practice their craft anonymously and in the dark of night. Requests to add Schtick to court, ritual or battlefields can be fielded through the Village Mouthpiece, Meggie inghean Lachlainn.

The Village

The Village of Lochleven, as distinct from the Household Locheleven, is made up of anyone who camps with the Household at Pennsic. All Villagers are encouraged to wear the blue and green and to try out any and all activites of the Society. Some Villagers only ever come to Pennsic, some are the spouses of Household members who don't really play in the SCA but like to go camping with us. Some Villagers are the children of household members and some are just trying this SCA thing out and need a welcoming place to do so. New members of the Household are drawn from the Villagers who decide to commit to participating fully in the society.

Villagers are encouraged to speak in outrageous Scottish accents. All are considered family.
