Scottish Highland Games

Please click here to see the Highland Games calendar.

For many, many years, traditional Scottish Highland Games have taken place throughout Scotland, including games on the picturesque Loch Earn. The villages of Balquidder, Lochearnhead and Strathyre hold their annual games at the Games Field in Lochearnhead.

The games are to take place on the penultimate weekend in July. Come and experience the thrills and spills, grunts and groans of the Highland Games as well as other Scottish entertainment including a pipe band, highland dancing and many other fun events for Adults and children alike. Other facilities include stalls selling local arts and crafts, confectionary and clothing, as well as on field bar and food.

On the third weekend of August, the nearby town of Crieff plays host to its own Highland Games, a tradition that has taken place since 1870. This offers you a second chance to witness a truly traditional Scottish event.
