Around the showgrounds arena were a wide array of tents selling Scotish specialties including sausages, haggis, shortbreads and some delicious scones plus a plenty of tartan and other memoribilia. There were small stages where dancers performed, a sword fight arena, wood chopping and even a classic car exhibition.

Many of the people we spoke to commented tat the event was the best Highland Gathering in living memory, you will see from our wonderful photo spread and video it was a great day out and we look forward to next years.
