The “Heavies” are the kilted strongmen who toss massive wooden cabers, throw scots hammers and weights and putt the shot. A sight not to be missed. There are pipers, Highland dancers, track and field athletes, cyclists, clay pigeon shooters and children, all competing for top prizes. Spectators are kept informed of all the action by both our roving commentator and announcer. Surrounding the

The Ballater Highland Games are held annually on the second Thursday in August in Monaltrie Park, Ballater and in 2018 the Games will be held on Thursday 9th August.
There have been Games held in Ballater since 1864 and, apart from the war years, the Games have continued uninterrupted until the present day.
Many famous athletes and champions have competed at Ballater. Today the events form part of the circuits comprising the Glenfiddich Heavy Events Championship and the Grampian Games Qualifying Championship, which encourages the younger athletes to participate in the heavy and field events.
Ballater Highland Games prides itself in having something for everyone, young and old alike. On Games Day there are a number of varied trade stands, together with a funfair for the children. On occasion, personalities are to be seen, and one memorable day a military 25 pounder was fired by a certain television presenter to signal the start of the Hill Race.
To complete the day, Beat Retreat by the Pipe Bands is planned for 7pm on the Church Green in Ballater.

Each summer the North-West Highland fishing village of Lochinver hosts the Assynt Highland Games. Also known as the ‘Friendly Games’, these take place in Culag Park on the second Friday in August, and provides a fun day for all the family.

The Hill Race and Tug-of-War mark the end of the day’s events on the Games Field but Games Day would not be complete without the Dance held on Games Night at Lochinver Village Hall.
Surrounded by stunning scenery – unspoilt beaches and iconic mountains such as Quinag and Suilven – there is so much more to do while you spend time with us in Assynt. But be sure to make a note in your diary for Friday 10th August 2018.

The Argyllshire Gathering Oban Games @ Argyll Square
Aug 23 all-day

Getting to the Games
You can’t miss Oban. As a busy ferryport, it is signposted from all over Argyll. The Games Field however, is not as easy to find – unless of course, it is Games Thursday, when you just follow the crowd by joining in with the Stewards March. As the official start of the Games, it sets off around 10.30am from Argyll Square next to the harbour. Led by the gold medal winning piper, competing pipers and our President, the Duke of Argyll, it makes its way colourfully and loudly, to the Games Field.

THE OBAN GAMES
Every year, on the fourth Thursdayin August, the people of Argyll gather with family and friends in their central town of Oban. In a land as vast and remote as this, it’s a rare chance to meet new people and socialise; but above all to celebrate the skill, strength and endurance of the Highlander.
As one of Scotland’s premier Highland Games, world class challengers from across the globe flock to Oban to do battle; heavyweights with the caber, stone or hammer, lighter athletes on the track, field and hill. Amid the emotive skirl of the pipes and the flash of clan colours on kilts, the rich history and traditions of this noble people is told in Scottish music and dance

Blairgowrie Highland Games @ Bogles Field

What Are The Scottish Highland Games?
Highland games are events held throughout the year in Scotland and other countries as a way of celebrating Scottish and Celtic culture and heritage, especially that of the Scottish Highlands. Certain aspects of the games are so well known as to have become emblematic of Scotland, such as the bagpipes, the kilt, and the heavy events, especially the caber toss. While centred on competitions in piping and drumming, dancing, and Scottish heavy athletics, the games also include entertainment and exhibits related to other aspects of Scottish and Gaelic culture.

The annual Games, a blend of spectacle and fun, take place on the first Sunday after the first Saturday in September in beautiful Perthshire.
The games this year will be held on Sunday 3rd September at Bogles Field, Essendy Road, Blairgowrie. PH10 6QU
We are always open to comments and happy to answer any questions you might have, so feel free to get in touch via the Contact Us page.
Whether you’re a local visitor or a tourist from overseas, you’ll find a very warm Highland welcome awaits you.

Pitlochry Highland Games @ Recration Ground
Sep 8 all-day

 

A Bumper Day at Pitlochry Highland Games – to give you an idea of what to expect
The phrase “saving the best till last” is certainly one that can be attributed to Pitlochry Highland Games. The Recreation Ground once again provided a fitting finale to the 2014 Games season on Saturday.
An appreciative and enthusiastic crowd of over 6,000 surrounded the arena cheering every heavy, runner, cyclist, dancer, pipe band and probably the loudest for the tug o’ war teams. Commentator Colin Liddell informed everyone that this was the biggest assembly of competitors seen at any Highland Games in recent times, with almost 200 track and field athletes taking part, as well as a large contingent of dancers and the 19 Pipe Bands. For most of the day, all were bathed in warm autumnal sunshine.

Nowhere else on the Highland Games circuit does the crowd interact with the competitors as they do at Pitlochry. The spectators cheered as Lorne Colthart (Blair Atholl) again broke three ground records in the Local Heavy events, just as he did last year. They lifted 67 year old Sam Bates (Tullibody) over the line in the 800 metres to win his first race at Pitlochry in over 20 years of trying. They were on their feet again as they roared home the diminutive 10 year old Hannah Jordan (Clydesdale), who was competing at her first Games, as she hung on determinedly to hold off over 30 rivals in the girls’ 400 metres.
From the opening inter-schools relay to every throw of the shot, hammer and caber to the Massed Parade of the Pipe Bands, everyone received their share of appreciation.

There were record entries for all the track and field competitions. The Scottish Junior Jumps Championship, which was first held last year, again proved popular, with Ewan Bradley (Inverness) taking the overall title and SHGA Scottish Championship medal and the local Sir David Butter medal too.
In the dancing, Claire McLaughlin (East Kilbride) won the adult section, whilst Jillian Kennedy (Aberfeldy) won the PHGA Dancing League.
Entries for the Scottish Athletic Clubs junior relay championship have been increasing year on year. This year three heats had to be run, and the final saw the 1st & 2nd positions from 12 months ago reversed with the Innerleithen Runners quartet beating the team from East Kilbride.

Running at his local Games, Craig Robertson (Pitreavie AC) won the SHGA and Championship of the Highlands 1600 metres title for the sixth year in succession after a thrilling last lap battle with Robert Bough (Edinburgh AC).

The biggest track prize of the day goes to the winner of the Open 90 metres handicap and it was won for the second successive year by a female athlete, Chloe Mason (East Kilbride AC).
Sarah Ross (Pitreavie AC), who travels hundreds of miles on public transport to compete on the Games circuit, was rewarded with her fine win in the 200m final.

The 400 metres races have produced some of the closest finishes on the circuit this season and the Pitlochry instalment proved no exception when, after consulting the photo finish equipment, a dead heat was announced between Cumbie Bowers (Glenrothes) and Willie Bates (Tullibody).

Glasgow cyclist Stevie Jackson has had a great season on the Games circuit and that continued at Pitlochry where he won the 3,200 metres Championship of the Highlands.
The Youth’s cycle events saw Kyle Cartwell (Forres) win the 800 metres and Marco Caira (Markinch) the 1600m.

A big field of Heavy Event competitors thrilled the crowds all afternoon, and the PSPC Heavy League was won by Stuart Anderson (Lochearnhead).
The ‘save the best to last’ theme continued in the tug o’ war as, once again, the Pitlochry contest proved to be one of the best on the Games circuit, with the crowd who were at that part of the ground almost 8 deep enthralled and vociferous, watching until the final pull of that competition went to a close finish in the early evening, with Mount Blair emerging as winners.
The Pipe Band Championship saw a clean sweep for the local Vale of Atholl Pipe Band, winning the Grade 1 competition, the drumming competition and the marching and smartness of turnout parade sponsored by Edradour Caledonia.
