Highland games and gatherings in Royal Deeside

Scotland’s Highland Games are renowned the world over as a unique event combining skills, culture, music and real Scottish hospitality

While the games still contain a very competitive element, the spectacle of Highland dancing and pipe bands combined with the tradition and excitement of the occasion make the Games a real highlight for any visitor lucky enough to be in Scotland at the right time

The origin of the Games are like most traditions lost in the mists of time – however the popularity of the Games is as strong as ever especially in the USA where there are many more Highland Games held than in Scotland!!

A typical Highland Games will include pipe band competitions, highland dancing and traditional feats of strength such as tossing the caber, throwing the hammer, the shot putt and a tug-of-war
