What are “Highland Games”?
“Highland Games” have existed in Scotland since the 11th Century AD. They say that King Malcolm the third announced a foot race to the summit of Craig Choinnich. The goal was to find the fastest runners in the country and to make them the king’s personal courier.
When we talk about the “Highland Games” today, we mean a rustic form of measuring strength that also offers a good amount of Scottish tradition and folklore. Highland Games are often organised as summer festivals, because they take place outdoors.
What games belong to the Highland Games?
Classics are activities such as the caber toss, bagpipe music and whiskey tasting. Also disciplines such as hay bale throwing belong to them. You see: it has a lot to do with strength – and also to do with just trying things out.
