Highland Games (Dundonald Games Society)
Highland games are events held throughout the year in Scotland and other countries as a way of celebrating Scottish and Celtic culture and heritage, especially that of the Scottish Highlands.
Certain aspects of the game are so well known as to have become emblematic of Scotland, such as the bagpipes, the kilt, and the heavy events, especially the caber toss.
While centred on competitions in piping and drumming, dancing and Scottish heavy athletics, the games also include entertainment and exhibits related to other aspects of Scottish and Gaelic culture.
There is great entertainment for all the family including:
- Street procession
- Highland games
- Pipe band contest
- Highland dancing contests
- Solo piping contest
- Heavy events display
- Adult and Juvenile Drum Majors
- Battle re-enactment
- Tug o' war
- Side stalls and entertainment
