Stirling’s leading culture sporting event is set to return later this year on Saturday August 20th with some exciting new additions to the schedule.
Even though a physical event, usually attended by thousands, hasn’t happened over the last two years because of the pandemic, Stirling successfully managed to fly the flag for highland games and promote visiting Stirling through their online virtual programmes which attracted viewers from around the world.
It has been a hard couple of years for highland games committees around Scotland with some already advising their events will not return this year however Stirling is aiming to not only return but will be adding attractions to the day’s schedule for both locals and visitors to enjoy.
As well as watching the highland games competitions, visitors can enjoy browsing the many arts and crafts; sample some of Scotland’s award-winning food and drink produce; listen to some live performances; take part in some visitor races or let the kids loose on some activities challenges; you can even get an on-site heritage tour and hear more about the history of the area. All in all, it seems visitors will be well looked after from 10.30am until 5pm.
