Surrounded by untouched natural beauty, it feels as though time has stood still at the Rannoch Highland Gathering. Founded in 1881, its event programme has changed little in the intervening years. Highlights include the challenging mile-long hill race up and down the peak of Craig Varr, the talented Auchterhouse Pipe Band, and the fiercely contested North v South Tug o’ War. Even the kids get a slice of the action with their very own mini Highland games. In short, this gathering offers a games experience as authentic as it gets.
