Highland Games

Throughout the summer there are local Highland Games around the area which are fabulous family days out.
Competitors from around the country come West to compete in the dancing, piping and the heavy events.
Locals and visitors are welcome to compete in some of the athletic events, including the hill races.
There are also fun things around like pillow fights on the slippery pole going on outside the ring.

These are great days to relax, enjoy the local food stalls, support local charities, listen to the piping, watch the young folk dancing, marvel at the prowess of the heavy games steeped in our heritage, where neighbouring clans and estates would vie to outdo each other, prove their strength, fleet of foot, display their training and abilities.
Like stags ranging at the rutting time, it was a lot of posturing but with intent and good reasons behind it.

check the calendar for the exact dates each year but a rule of thumb is

Inveraray Highland Games 3rd Tuesday July..
Mull Highland Games 3rd Thursday July ..
Taynuilt Highland Games 3rd Saturday July
Argyllshire Gathering (Oban) 3rd Thursday August .
