Games Day

Welcome to Crieff Highland Gathering‘s Official website

Crieff Highland Gathering looks forward to welcoming you on

Sunday 20th August 2017.

The Gathering is held in the centre of Crieff at the iconic Market Park.

We have a full programme of traditional Highland games competitions on offer including Running, Youth Running, Cycling, Highland Dancing, Heavyweights, Light Field, and Tug o War.

We will also showcase several Piping Performances throughout the day as well as the spine-tingling salute to the Chieftain and the customary Massed Pipe Bands finale.

The Gathering is famous for being the “home of the Heavyweights”, with the top athletes/strongmen in the world coming every year to try and win “The Championship” and throw the Crieff Challenge Caber.

We also have a full afternoon of top class traditional music in the Glenturret Tent area of the Park, this year headlined by top Scottish band Skipinnish.

Details of acts for 2016 will be posted here as they are confirmed so please keep checking back.
We have made sure there is plenty to do in our traders village with a delicious range of food and coffee servers, craft and activities to take part in for all the family. We also have an onsite bar so you can enjoy refreshments throughout the day whilst enjoying the Games and music with friends.

Every Gathering, which is famous for its friendship and hospitality, is a memorable occasion and 2016 will be no exception, especially as we have a few new surprises planned for sharing with you again on the 21st August this year!
