The Highlands of Scotland have been immortalised in all sorts of films, songs and paintings. Iconic games like caber tossing have existed in the national consciousness of the Scottish for centuries, but over the twentieth and twenty first centuries their magic has spread to the USA and Europe.
The Highland Games may sound like a group of events unique to the most traditional of quilt-wearing Scots but they attract hundreds of thousands of spectators from around the globe each year. Athens had their Olympics, but the Highland Games breed a far stronger, more rustic and more artistic form of athlete. The Games are held at various locations around the world each year with events such as the caber toss, the stone put and the bagpipes. If your attempt to get tickets for the 2012 Olympics failed, fear not, for the Highland Games will provide everything you want from an athletic event and more, from atmosphere and entertainment to raw sporting talent.
The Iglu team has trawled the internet for this list. The Highland Games is an informal, old-fashioned affair, devoid of commercialism. We know you'll use this list to find your nearest Highland Games or indeed to travel to Scotland.
