Scotland - Events - The Highland Games

The world famous Scottish Highland Games are annual festivals that celebrate Scottish culture. They take place in parks all over Scotland, usually from May to September.

During this period Scottish people celebrate their cultural heritage through sport and traditional music; piping, bands, Scottish harp, the ceilidh, and folk dancing.

In the Highland Games, the Scottish Clans (surname groups associated with a region of origin) compete in athletic competitions (light athletics, heavy athletics, Scottish wrestling, tug-of-war).
