Perth Highland Games

Perth Highland Games is one of the most popular events in the Scottish Highland Games calendar, which runs from May to mid-September each year.

The Games include traditional Heavyweight events such as throwing weights and hammers and tossing the caber. In addition, there is Highland dancing, foot- and cycle races, solo piping and the very popular pipe band contest with large numbers of overseas bands often taking part.

A wide range of trade and craft stands will cater for your shopping and catering needs and there’s a fairground amusements area for children of all ages.
