Blair Atholl Highland Games

Sunday 24th May Blair Atholl Highland Games:  The Highland Gathering on Sunday from 10.00am, with the Atholl Highlanders officially opening the Highland Games with a "March On" at 1.15pm, led again by the skirl of their pipes and the deep, sonorous booming of their drums.

 Following the March On, heavyweight strong men from around Scotland take centre stage to battle it out in the Highland Games, which includes traditional events such as tossing the caber, putting the shot and throwing the hammer. Highland Games date back many centuries, with most of the events tracing their roots back to ancient Scottish battle weapons and fighting techniques.
