What You Can Expect

Scottish Highland Games Day Trip from Edinburgh

Scottish Highland Games Day Trip from Edinburgh

This tour is likely to sell-out! The Scottish Highland Games Day Trip from Edinburgh has limited availability, so book ahead to avoid disappointment!

Dating back more than 900 years, when the Clans gathered to show off their athletic skills, the Scottish Highland Games are an unmissable event on the European calendar.

Highlights of this fantastic spectacle include Highlands dancing, pipe band displays, hammer throwing, tug-of-war, wrestling and, of course, tossing the caber.

The Games are held in different regions throughout the year, with the most famous held in Braemar in late summer.

All tours spend the morning exploring the Highlands en-route to the village where the games are being held and at least 2-3 hours at the games themselves.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Excellent guide who gave us very good information and interesting. Loved seeing the Highland Games in Scotland as my family had attended the Highland Games in Los Angeles for 30 years. A Must for visiting Scotland to walk around with the locals and enjoy the Games tradition.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

We found the day to be perfect even though we had a break down on the way back.
The Games were amazing and there was no tourist theme to them at all - it was just pure Scottish traditional that we were fortunate enough to witness.
Our guide was first class- he was extremely knowledgable and funny
