Here in the lands of MacGregor, MacLaren, MacNab, and Stewart of Strathern, you can experience all the thrills of traditional highland games at Lochearnhead in a fabulous setting beside Loch Earn; the swing of the kilt, the bagpipes, highland dancing, tossing the caber and all the other elements of traditional highland games.
At Lochearnhead Highland Games we run the traditional range of heavyweight events in both local and open competitions. Heavy and light hammers, caber tossing, shot-putt, weight over the bar, tug-o-war as well as a number of track and field events, including a gruelling hill race. Lochearnhead Highland Games still holds records for Olympic athletes such as Geoff Capes.
Traditional highland dancing and a range of piping events run throughout the afternoon, often with an opportunity to see world champion competitors in the most picturesque surroundings imaginable. There are also fun events for children and the more adventurous adults.
A number of trade stands are also present selling a range of confectionery, clothing and craft goods. On-field food and bar facilities are provided.
