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

The Cowal Highland Gathering @ Dunoon UK
Aug 23 @ 11:51 am – Aug 25 @ 12:51 pm

2018 will once again bring a huge range of family attractions to the Cowal Highland Gathering, already one of the most spectacular highland games in the world.

With its mix of highland dancing, pipe bands, wrestling, heavy athletics, solo piping, drum majors, ceilidh, children’s entertainment, fun run and local food, there’s something for everyone at the Cowal Highland Gathering.

If you’ve never visited before and can only manage one day, then come on Saturday. Watch the top highland dancers in the world compete in the finals of the World Highland Dancing Championship, listen to the pipe bands battle it out in the Cowal Pipe Band Championship and cheer on the world’s best heavy athletes as they toss the caber. You can also catch top live Scottish music in the Ceilidh Tent. To round off the day, witness the spine-tingling salute to the Chieftain. The sound of 100s of pipers and drummers playing in unison will stay with you forever.
