About us


The Tartan LUG is a Scottish group of Adult Fans of LEGO® (AFOLs). We are a very active community who organise public shows, exhibitions, kids’ clubs and AFOL meet-ups. Our members are interested in all aspects of LEGO®. We love to build, collect, show and talk about those beautiful bricks.


The Tartan LUG has no definite start date as most members have been LEGO® fans their whole life. The members have been meeting together for years to discuss LEGO®. The LUG had its first official organized meet up in December 2014 and its first public show in July 2015.


Our members love to share their builds, ideas and suggestions. Most of the community discussion happens in our closed Facebook group (Tartan LUG Fan Zone), and members-only discussions take place in our forum.

Committee members

At the AGM in March 2021, the following committee members were elected:

Christine Aird


My love of Lego has not diminished since my first set at age 4.
I love building MOCs, I have a whole town including hospital, supermarket and cathedral.
Proud to be part of the LUG, and it has introduced me to many lovely friends!I love attending and displaying at shows around the country and this has led me to meet so many fellow LEGO® fans!

Kenny Smith


I have been a Lego fan as long as I can remember and still have sets that are over 30 years old. I love the Creator modular sets and being a bit of a geek anything Star Wars or superhero related goes down well (I even combine them on occasion). Lego is very much a family affair for me with my daughter having a keen interest and can be seen at most displays with me.

LUG Ambassador

Richard McCarthy

Engagement Officer

Forever sorting. I've been a Lego fan most of my life, with my dark ages thankfully only a few awkward years spent in my teens. I really enjoy historical themes such as Castle, Pirates, and the Adventurers- a lot of my MOCs reflect this love.
