Abernethy Highland Games

Saturday 13th August 2011.Games field Nethybridge

It’s August now and Games day approaches; all the preparations are in hand, and the hope is for good weather!

Last year four records were broken on the field, and the quality of the competition, and the enthusiasm of the spectators and competitors alike, made it a memorable day. No one will forget Kyle Randall's spectacular throws, thrilling the crowd, smashing the 15'9 Scottish record for Junior 44lb weight over the bar, and clearing 16'6". We believe Kyle will be competing again this year, so watch out for some great competition!

The spectacle of the Massed Pipes and Drums is not to be missed The old song goes “wi’ a hundred pipers an’ a’ an’ a’ “ but this year the Clan Grant march on to the field with two hundred pipers and drummers: nine pipe bands will take to the field, the largest massed band we have had at Abernethy, and surely the largest gathering of pipe bands in Scotland today outside the World Championships in Glasgow! If one pipe band makes a stirring sound then think what 9 will be like!

We at Great North Lodges still have Eagle Lodge and Heather Cottage available for rental from the 12th for 3 to 7 nights if you do wish to come up and join us.
