Saturday 17th August
The Glenfinnan Gathering or Glenfinnan Highland Games are often regarded as one of the best in the Highlands. There isn't another place in Scotland that exceeds the lochside location surrounded by mountains and much of Scotland's history from 1745 onwards began in Glenfinnan. The Games are held on the Saturday in August which is closest to the 19th of the month, which is the date of the Jacobite Rising at Glenfinnan.
A beer tent, food, parking and toilet facilities are available.
Glenfinnan is a pleasant 17 mile drive from Fort William and if you are visiting Lochaber on the day, we really do recommend these Games to you.
