There will be Pipe Bands, Highland Dancers, solo piping and solo drumming along with traditional Scottish field events for everyone to try. Toss a caber or the sheaf, test your speed and strength on the Hill Run or join a Tug-of-war team, the events are run in age groups so everyone can have a go.

A bouncy castle and children's games will keep the little ones entertained and the market stalls provide a range of food, refreshments and items of interest for everyone. If you're looking to purchase a kilt, jewellery or other items of Highland attire, specialist stalls will be on site. The many Clan stalls have people happy to help you research your Scottish roots.

This is a family friendly event where all ages are catered for. The large marquee provides shade and a place to sit, relax and chat. The afternoon sees the Pipe Bands take to the circle in the middle of the field, the competition is followed by a massed bands display.

A traditional haggis ceremony then takes place in the marquee followed by the Prize Giving. Stay on into the evening and enjoy a barbecue dinner followed by a Cheilidh with a live band providing music to dance away into the night. A cash bar is on site. Free parking is provided on site and camp sites are available for $5 per night.
