Highland Games in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Monday, July 27, 2009

Today, I am posting information about The Highland Games in Edinburgh on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th. It was really amazing. The Highland Games are events held throughout in Scotland, once a years to celebrate Scottish and Celtic culture and heritage. During this event you have :
  • Highland Games combine athletic and sports competitions. This includes Caber tossing and hammer throwing.




  • Music: the pipe bands is one of the most memorable things during the Highland Games , the music of the bagpipe which is today the symbol of the games. Other musical instruments include the flute.

  • Dance: There are two basic forms of dancing at modern Highland Games gatherings, Scottish country dancing which is like ballroom dancing and Highland dancing which is referred to a style of athletic solo dancing.
  • Clan Village: You can find people who have the same name and keep in touch.


Then, you have a lot of activities for children and also you can discover the Scottish foods throughout the food stand.

The atmosphere was really fantastic,
