The 41st Drumtochty Highland Games take place this afternoon in the grounds of Drumtochty Castle. Games action runs throughout the afternoon with admission on the gate.
If it is the fourth Saturday in June it must be Auchenblae and the “Drumtochty Highland Games”. This has been the tradition for over 30 years. Known as the friendliest Highland Games in the area the Drumtochty Games is firmly established in the Scottish Highland Games calendar as one of the most outstanding events.
This is not only because of the top competitors attending and records broken but also for the all-round entertainment offered and the sheer beauty of the venue. Held in the grounds of Drumtochty Castle in Drumtochty Glen just 2 miles outside Auchenblae, any visitor will agree, there is no better place to be on the fourth Saturday in June.
If you want to watch some of the best athletes and have a fun day out, then come to the Drumtochty Highland Games, referred to as the most friendly Games in the area and do not forget to bring your camera with you. There are also lots of opportunities for the young and not so young to join in on some open games.
A full timetable of events can be viewed via the Drumtochty Highland Games website.
