Your gaming adventure begins in the morning on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. Meet your local guide and board the coach for the ride to the games site. The site changes throughout the season, with the most popular gathering taking place in Braemer on the first weekend in September. As you travel through the stunning Scottish Highlands, hear fascinating facts about the Highland Games, descended from the 11th-century event held by Malcolm when Scottish Clans went head-to-head in tests strength and stamina.
When you arrive, spend several hours watching exciting competitions like hammer throwing, wrestling and caber tossing. Enjoy some traditional Scottish music and vibrant dancing before heading back to Edinburgh, where your 9.5-hour tour concludes at the starting point on Royal Mile.
Please Note: Event runs from late-May through September.
