About the Rannoch Highland Gathering

Apart from the odd World War, Rannoch has held it's Highland Gathering on the third Saturday of August since 1881. Orginally the Gathering was held annually in different locations around the loch, since 1955 it has been held in the Weller Poley Park in Kinloch Rannoch.

The Highland Gathering has always been the highlight of Rannoch's social and sporting calendar and is now a member of the Perthshire Highland Games Association.

Whatever your age and ability the Gathering offers the opportunity to meet friends, participate in the events and perhaps raise funds for local charities and good causes.

As Chieftain since 2016, I have become increasingly aware that the committee which organises the event, setting up and running the Gathering on the day has largely been in place for some time and is in danger of being considered elitist - this is far from the case and we are very keen to welcome new blood with new ideas and hopefully new enthusiasm and vigour to become involved.
