Immerse yourself in the merry atmosphere and experience Scottish culture at one of the Highland Games events. From hammer throwing and caber tossing to Highland dancing and piping competitions, these exciting events are a highlight of the Scottish calendar and make for an unforgettable day out.

The Highland Games are held throughout the summer to celebrate Scottish culture and heritage. This full-day tour enables you to venture up into the Highlands and see a fascinating spectacle against the backdrop of a verdant landscape. Take part in a unique combination of culture, sport and social entertainment; put the shot, taste some whiskey, enjoy the sound of bagpipes and see the twirl of kilts at these historic athletic games.

Each games event is uniquely charming. Choose from a variety of events, including the world-famous Braemar Gathering, which is held every year. Known as “The Games”, this event has traditionally been attended by the Royal Family, including Her Majesty the Queen, and has been celebrated since the days of King Malcolm Canmore, more than 900 years ago.
