Mini Highland Games

The Glen Urquhart Gathering and Highland Games Mini Highland Games, where the emphasis is on fun, start at 12.30pm on the all weather pitch.

The games are free to try – come along and test your strength!

If your hands aren’t quite big enough to grapple a caber, or throw the 22lb hammer, come along and try our Mini Highland Games.

Open to all the family from the tiny tots to the slightly older generations!

Try your hand at:

  • Caber Toss – we’ll show you how to perfect your technique to secure the perfect toss
  • Splat the Haggis – can you splat the elusive highland beastie?
  • Welly Hurling – our fun take on the hammer throw – how far can you hurl the wellies?
  • Hurl the Hay Sack – can you get the sack over the bar?
  • Tug of War – for teams of 5 or 6, get the whole family together and test your strength against your friends

Make your own Clan Flags – once you’ve used up all your energy sit down and make a flag as a reminder of your day at the Mini Highland Games
