Skye Highland Games

CowalHighlandGathering

Inaugurated in 1877, tossing the caber ever since

The Skye Highland Games ​ was inaugurated in 1877, but they were going on for centuries before that. The field is shaped like a natural amphitheatre, and contestants arrive from across the island and beyond to compete in all the traditional events. Watch out for the tug o' war, wrestling, athletics and the famous caber toss. The highland dancing competition takes place the day before.
