Traditional Highland Games are held all over Scotland throughout the summer months from the small village events to the huge and historic Highland Games like the Lonach and Braemar Gatherings where famous celebrities watch the march of the Lonach men or the Queen and her family at Braemar. They all have opportunities for all the family to join in the fun.
