I was there over 30 years ago and still remember the beauty of the venue. It is definitely the most scenic games that I've ever attended.

We will be there for our 1st Highland Dance competition. It was about 6-7 years ago we had everything planned and unfortunately I had an allergic reaction to anti-botics from a tooth procedure and ended up in the hospital.

Looking forward to 2 days of fun on Sat and Sun and Albanach, massed bands and of course some meat pies! biggrin.gif

Have to report the 38th Highland Games at Loon was terrific! Caught 2 shows each of Albannach and Hot Chili Pipers. Unbelievable. I have no voice left and I spent most of today recovering from the weekend. Lots of meat pies, fish and chips, lamp and thumbs with gravy (yum).

Will be at Scotland, CT in 2 weeks for their games. Lovin the games!
