The Killin Highland Games, in the middle of Outlander country.
Held in heart of the central highlands, in Breadalbane Park, Killin FK21 8UT, the Killin Highland Games have been popular for 25 years.
There are many reasons why visitors attend. The Games offer heavyweight competitions, including the famous ‘tossing the caber’, highland dancing and piping competitions and a very popular amateur hill race, up the nearby Sròn a'Chlachain, as well as food and artisan stalls. One of the great benefits for visitors is that the games are held on a Wednesday afternoon, away from the traditionally busy ‘change-over’/ travel day.
As well as traditional games activities the location is exceptionally scenic. Within easy access from Scotland’s major central cities and towns, Killin village is the setting of the famous Falls of Dochart. A highlight of the day is the pipe band parade over the iconic Falls of Dochart Bridge at 1pm.
