Highland Gathering

2016:

2-4 September.

STAY TUNED!

Highland Gatherings began as occasions when the people of Scotland met to trade and to socialise.
Given the war-like traditions and clan feuds of the Highlanders, there was also fierce competition when whisky (and sometimes blood) flowed.
The tradition of competing in athletics, piping and dancing is how the violence was tamed and survives into the modern era.
