Hello Jaxom and welcome!

This site has SOME of the 2004 games listed - but some of the dates are still not confirmed yet.

http://www.albagames.co.uk/Highland_games2000.htm

I'm not sure what you mean about 'general advice'...... do you mean you would like to take part in one or more of the events?

I'm a bit rusty at sport these days. I was hoping to just soak up the atmosphere.
so I was hoping for general advice on what to expect on the day and if you have to pay entrance fees etc

Well, yes, you do pay an entry fee, but it's not usually very much!

There are games, eg tossing the caber etc; there are dancing competitions; piping and band competitions; and horses and cattle on show to be judged. There are often sheep dog trials, too.

Thanks for that link Cat.
Its been a few years since I was at a Highland Games and given that my holidays involves a tour of the West Coast this year I might just be able to make the Glenfinnan event on 21st August........ thumbs_up.gif

Over the years I've enjoyed the Cowal games, Ian. Not sure which date this year - but always worth a visit!

I love watching the sheep dog compititions!!!! Such intelligent animals.

My puppy is bred to watch over sheep. His current job is watching over the cats. He does a great job! wink.gif

sheepdog trials are certainly very cool. I like them alot. I also like all sorts of domestic animal and vegetable competitions, as a city child I'm sort of lacking the understanding why growing the biggest Cucumber (I think with vegetables size matters: the smaller the more taste accumulated on one spot) is great but I love wandering through rows of vegetables that have been polised and garnished...
