Cowal Highland Gathering


One of the biggest highland games in Scotland

With 23,000 spectators each year, the Cowal Highland Games  is huge. There are drummers, pipe bands, and highland dancers from across Scotland, as well as the wrestlers and the 'heavies', who like to throw cabers around.

The children's activities include stunt bike performances, Artie's Tartan Tales and craft area. There's a ceilidh tent with Heron Valley performing, and plenty of local food to keep the whole family going.
