Carmunnock International Highland Games

About Carmunnock International Highland Games

We look forward to seeing you again this year on Sunday 26th May in the beautiful setting of Glasgow’s last remaining conservation village. The event is being held at the King George V Playing Field in the centre of Carmunnock. Gates open at 11.30am and the games begin at 12.30pm.

Our Chieftain this year is Sandy Wilkie. Sandy was recently awarded an honorary lifetime membership of the Scottish Grocers Federation, recognising his contribution to the development of the dairy industry in Scotland, particularly his support for the independent retail sector. Sandy was the business relationship and development director with Muller Milk and is a former chairman of both the Dairy Council and the Milk Marketing Forum, as well as the European Dairy Association Liquid Milk Group.

This year, along with the traditional Men’s International Highland Games we will see the return of Vadim’s Highland Warrior Challenge, featuring 8 highly trained individual contestants battling each other in 3 events – Log Fighting, Freestyle Combat & Stick Fighting

COME AND HAVE A GO!

Our hugely popular Community Challenge also returned with locals competing in 2 man teams in events such as “The 2-man Pole Push”, “Bale Rolling” & “Taxi Pull”. Why not enter your team now to challenge our reigning champions in 2019?! We also have Individual Events such as “Swingle Tree” and “The Manhood Stone Lift”. And it goes without saying, strictly for ladies only, the hugely popular “Welly Throw”! The kids can also get involved with races for all age groups and lots of activities!

Other attractions include stalls selling refreshments and food, bar area with live music by local musician Fozzy, local businesses selling a wide range of gifts and goods, traditional Scottish bagpipes and dancers, fabulous tribal sounds, not to mention lots of entertainment for the kids including bouncy castles, fun rides, races, tattoos, face painting, caricatures, sweets & cakes, ice-creams and jewellery!

All of these fantastic attractions, into what is already a hugely successful event, increase the scale and status of Carmunnock International Highland Games, and provide a real spectacle for everyone to enjoy! It really is a great event and at only £7 for adults and £4 for children & OAP’S, the best value games in Scotland!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Carmunnock International Highland Games are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
