Highland Games

Do you fancy staging your own Scottish Highland Games?  We can come to your venue and, ably assisted by our Highland Games' competitors, we will set up and run a genuine Highland Games for you. 
 
The events can include putting the shot, throwing the hammer, weight over the bar, tug of war, chucking the wellie and of course, tossing the caber. You might prefer having a go at the bagpipes, highland dancing or Haggis Hurling.

We can make it as competitive as you like to bring out the Highlander in you!
