A Highland fling

What: Highland Fling
Where: Loch Lomond
When: 16 July 2011

Highland dancing, tug o’ war and pipe band competitions. It has to be a Highland fling.

More than 10,000 people attend the annual Loch Lomond Highland Games each year, so you’ll have plenty of company to cheer on the competitors.

Even better - if you fancy giving some of the games a try yourself, then you’re in luck. Participant entries are being accepted for most events up until 16th June. Postal applications only though, so you’d better get a move on. More details can be found on the Loch Lomond Highland Games website.
