Event | Arisaig Highland Games and ClanDonald Gathering
Wednesday, 26th July 2017
The Arisaig Highland Games and Clan Donald Gathering take place on the last Wednesday of July.
The 80th Arisaig Highland Games and 10th Clan Donald Gathering
was held in 2016.
For 2017, the programme is yet to be finalised but it's likely there will be a pre-Games Ceilidh at Traigh on the Tuesday evening.
The venue is the scenic location of Traigh Farm, Arisaig with sweeping views across sandy beaches towards the Cuillins of Skye & the Small Isles of Eigg and Rhum.
The Games features a full list of traditional events including solo piping, throwing the hammer, tossing the caber, highland dancing, and a range of track and field events including children’s races.
We begin with a ceremonial parade through the village itself, led by the Lochaber Schools Pipe Band. The focus then switches to Traigh with the Games officially opened by Ranald, 24th Captain of Clan Ranald.
Around the arena have a variety of side shows, exhibition tents, trade stalls and refreshment stands.
And to round it all off, we finish with a traditional cèilidh dance in the village hall in the evening.
