On Sunday 10th May 2015, Gourock Park starts off the Highland Games season with a bang as hundreds of drummers, pipers, heavies and highland dancers from across the country come together to compete in the Gourock Highland Games.
An important date in the Scottish calendar, it’s the first games after the winter and a chance to celebrate sports, music and dancing outdoors against the scenic backdrop of the firth of Clyde and Argyll hills beyond.
At this year’s Gourock Highland Games, now in their 59th year, there’ll be pipe band and drum major competitions; highland dance competitions; heavyweight events; mini highland games; children’s entertainment; gift and craft stalls – a great day out for all the family.
The event is supported by EventScotland and forms part of Scotland’s Year of Food & Drink celebrations. There will be a food & drink marquee filled with Scottish producers selling everything from tablet to chilli sauce!
