The Traditional Scottish Highland Games

Posted on by Jo Page

The Highland Games is an extremely popular event for locals and tourists alike throughout May to September all over the Highlands in approximately 80 cities, towns, villages and islands.

Highland Games are a great mix of traditional events such as heavy athletics, including tug o war, caber toss, shot put and weight for height throw. You will also see pipe band and Highland dance competitions.

As well as the traditional activities to watch there is always a good spread of local small businesses and craft sellers attending and the chance to taste some local fresh and traditionally Scottish fayre!

A Highland Games event would be a fantastic addition to any campervan or motorhome holiday or Highland road trip, here are some useful websites to help with your planning!

Visit Scotland has a great deal of information about the Highland Games activity on their website, Click HERE to be directed straight to the Highland Game information, they also provide a great online brochure that would come in very handy.

We were very pleased with the service we received from you and all the other staff we spoke with during our visits to Highland Campervans. Everyone was friendly, and helpful without putting any pressure on to buy. The staff all seem to be genuinely enthusiastic and keen to ensure that customers are well looked after, the good impression you all gave was essential in giving us the confidence to go through the sourcing process with you. The subsequent purchase and handover all went very swiftly and smoothly and we were grateful for your updates on progress.
