Whilst on Holiday at Lochearnhead we heard about the Crieff Highland Gathering. Having never been to anything like this before my wife and i thought we would give it a go.
We arrived at 10:30. Having looked around all the stores (at least twice!) sampled brilliant food, met and spoke to brilliant knowledgeable people, enjoyed every single event (I am a competitive cyclist so especially enjoyed the grass track cycling which I had never seen before) marvelled at the skill of the dancers and strength of the heavyweight competitors, cheered on the runners AND met Andy (Freddie) Flintoff as well. We finally left at about 17:30!!
Can't remember when I last had such a great days entertainment. Even the occasional shower did not dampen our enthusiasm. Please pass on my thanks to all involved in the organization and hope to see you all again next year. (please can you confirm which (facebook?) page I am best "liking" to keep up with future events and of course next years date so as I can make sure our holiday is booked to coincide with the event.
Once again many thanks
David & Margaret Shipley (Wirral)
