Highland Games Visit

If you are visiting Edinburgh and would like to experience one of Scotland’s Highland Games events we would be delighted to arrange a private tour to take you there.

Highland Games take place most weeks throughout the summer months and provide a unique blend of culture, sport and social entertainment. With events ranging from caber tossing to Highland dancing and bagpiping competitions, they are a must for any visitor to Scotland.

Each Highland Games is its own unique event, so no two will be exactly the same.

We will collect you from your accommodation and make our way towards the Highland Games venue. Depending on where this is, we will make a number of suggested stops at various interesting locations en route to maximise your day exploring Scotland.

We can then spend as long as you wish enjoying the events and competitions of the day.

We can create a packed lunch option with this tour or we can arrange to build in a lunch stop prior to our visit to the games. Alternatively you may want to grab a bite to eat from one of the food stands operating at the games.

Where possible, we will return to Edinburgh taking a different route to maximise your sightseeing opportunities.

Once back in Edinburgh, if you want a real taste of Scotland’s larder we can arrange dinner at one of our favourite Edinburgh restaurants. Here you will taste local, seasonal Scottish food and drink, the perfect end to your Highland Games day out.

Our Highland Games tours will take place regardless of the weather – so prepare for four seasons in one day. Umbrellas provided!
