Pack your caber - we’re heading north to soak up the testosterone-fuelled atmosphere of the Highland Games. Kicking off in towns and villages across Scotland, The Games, or Gatherings, promise a truly Scottish experience, with a backdrop of sexy Highland scenery to boot.
Let the battle of the clans commence! The Highland Games are renowned the world over as a test of strength between friends and foe. Dating back over 900 years, these athletic, kilt-clad contests promise hammer throwing, caber tossing and some classic tug-o-war action. Whilst pipe band displays and Highland dancing add to the merriment.
With over 80 Highland Games to choose from, we’ve picked the very best events for our range of day tours. Each has its own local charm and character – showing off Scotland’s unique culture and knock-out landscapes. But if you’re looking for a right royal gathering, check out the world famous Braemar Gathering…
Aka ‘The Games’. This event is steeped in history and blue blood - believed to have been held by Malcolm III, way back in the 11th Century. These days Her Majesty the Queen is patron and you may spot the rest of the Royal Family in the crowd, as they have traditionally been spectators since Queen Victoria attended in 1848. The annual Highland Games Gathering is held at Braemar in Royal Deeside on the first Saturday of September.
