Tis The Season Of Scottish Highland Games …

caberBetween now and September the traditional Highland Gatherings and Games take place all over Scotland.

The Highland Games or Gatherings are a traditional celebration of sporting, social and cultural activities.

No two Games are exactly alike, but there is always a mixture of field and track events, pipe bands and piping competitions as well as highland dancing and my personal favourite, the tossing of the caber!

Here are the dates of Gatherings in this area:

Blairgowrie 20 July

Balquhidder 26 July

St Andrews 27 July

Bridge of Allan 3 August
