The Durness Highland Gathering is one of the most spectacular events held in this North West corner of Scotland. Held annually in July.
Date of next Games: Friday 29th July 2016
There can be
little doubt that traditional Games of agility and strength have been
practised in the Highlands from very early times. Durness
Highland Gathering is a small event with all the trimmings of
traditional Scottish Highland Games. Revived in 1970 after a break of
approximately ten years. In
1914, the Sports can be recollected as being held at Achins in
September. Since 1970, the Gathering has been held in the present field,
The event begins at 12 noon with the chosen Chieftain for the day meeting the members of the pipe band before marching on to the Games Field to declare the games open. Entry to all competitions are free and open to everyone no matter which country you come from. If you do not wish to compete just come and watch and maybe meet up with old friends or make new ones. This is a day not to be missed when touring this beautiful part of the Highlands of Scotland. We have much to offer in the way of a Scottish Pipe Band, Highland Dancers, Field, Track and Heavy events.
