Articles, interviews, photos and schedules related to Highland Games activities.

Highland games are festivals held throughout the year in Scotland and many other countries of the world as a way of celebrating Scottish and Celtic culture and heritage, especially that of the Scottish Highlands. Almost all of the Games feature the kilt, bagpipes, Highland dancing, and Scottish athletic events.

Photo: An example of a sporran. The sporran is perhaps the most neccesary kilt accessories and is used to carry a variety of items, such as car keys, wallet, etc, in the absence of pockets on the kilt.
