Whether new or a returning visitor to our games, competitor, sponsor or one of our many supportive trade stand owners we look forward to seeing you on Sunday 16th August 2015 and trust this website will lead you to all the information needed to make your visit to Crieff Highland Gathering an exciting and memorable one.
Since 1870 as one of Scotland’s longest running Games, Crieff is particularly fortunate to have a wonderful bespoke Games field (The Market Park) with its natural amphitheatre adding to the amazing atmosphere in this great and very traditional highland gathering.
In addition to the great spectacle of the pipers athletes, dancers and those amazing heavy weight competitors, we in Crieff, have also added a wide range of new and amazing attractions to help make your visit on the 16th of August truly memorable.
This year we have decided to build on the success of last year’s music marquee and are very pleased to announce an even bigger, better and brilliant gathering of local and national musicians who will perform for you. Our headline act, this year, is the amazing Scottish traditional band SKERRYVORE.
Another first for Crieff’s 2015 Games will be the 1 mile Kilt run through the streets of town and down to the Games field which promises to bring wonderful colour and great competition to the start of the day.
The sight and sound of the massed piped bands marching, past the Square in Crieff and down to the Games field will also deliver an impressive start to what will, all in all, be another day to be remembered at The Crieff Highland Gathering.
