Looking for a Scottish experience this weekend or this summer. The start of Scottish Summer means the beginning of the Scottish Highland Gatherings and this weekend Sunday 17th June they are being held in Aberdeen at Hazelhead Park 10.00am – 5.30pm
Scottish Highland Games or Highland Gatherings are held every summer in Scotland and a great representation of Scottish culture. Traditionally the highland games focused on athletic and sports competitions but over time the events have become a great form of entertainment for a family day out. The event still focusses heavily on the traditional Scottish sports including The Caber Toss, Stone put, Scottish Hammer throw but the games now encompass a full day’s entertainment with Scottish highland dancing, bag pipe competition and opening and closing ceremonies. The events are held throughout Scotland and all lead up to The Royal Highland Games - The Braemar Gathering on 1st September 2018.
