About

The Rannoch Highland Gathering


The Rannoch Highland gathering has been held on the third Saturday in August every year since 1881, with a couple of breaks for world wars. It moved to it's permanent location at Weller Poley Park in Kinloch Rannoch in 1955. The event has modernised to an extent, but in essence is very much as it was at conception. It is the weekend when the local community welcomes the world to join in the traditions and fun of a Highland Games.

I have been privilege to be Chieftain since 2016 and am proud to see the way that, every year, the whole village and surrounding community come together to put this event together. This translates into a wonderful atmosphere on the day, and a great sense of inclusiveness. There is something for everyone, whether it be the smiles of children watching their parents make a fool of themselves in our space hopper race, to runners coming from far and wide to tackle the unique challenge of the hill race.

Kinloch Rannoch invites you to come and have fun the Highland way.
