  • For over 700 years the Highland Games have been a staple of Scottish culture ever since the first game in 1314 in Fife, under the charter of Robert the Bruce. These tests of raw strength, stamina – and porridge eating – now occur all throughout Scotland and now the world, regularly breaking new Guinness World Records and providing entertainment to millions. Dancing, marching bands and haggis throwing keep the crowds amused while the athletes prepare for games like the tug of war and the world famous tossing of the caber. Interestingly, in some Highland Games in France, they toss a huge champagne cork instead of a caber...I can’t help but feel we Scots are missing out on a great idea...
