Crieff Highland Games

Every year, in the middle of August, Crieff Highland Games takes center stage in the Strathearn Capital. Having just attended the 2015 Crieff games I can attest it really is a great day out. With a mix of heavyweight and athletic sports, dancing, pipe bands and folk/rock bands, Crieff Highland Gathering absolutely nailed it this year.

The chieftan for 2015 was curling superstar, Eve Muirhead.

The Games were watched by 6,500 locals and visitors – one of the better crowds in recent years, helped by a new format and some stunning summer weather.

The new format saw the bands Clanadonia and Skerryvore playing to hundreds of enthusiastic games goers.

The day started with a parade through the town.

And the games themselves went on all afternoon. There was plenty of praise on social media too for the day out.

Can’t wait til next year now to see what they’ve got lined up for 2016!
