Darts

Darts is serious business in the Highlands and great fortunes are won and lost on a single throw. Men play darts at roadside ‘clubs’ where a dozen dartboards are fixed to posts sticking out of the ground. The rules are more or less the same as for regular darts, but you stand a lot further away – Highlands darts is something between regular darts and javelin throwing. Sometimes you can see men in traditional costume playing at village darts clubs.
