Helensburgh and Lomond Highland Games are a family & dog-friendly, community driven, traditional event!
The Helensburgh & Lomond Games is set to return this summer, located in the west of Scotland, tantalizingly close to the shores of Loch Lomond, the stunningly beautiful, original sea-side getaway, Helensburgh, Argyll & Bute, Scotland!
Featuring a variety of traditional Highland Games Competitions like the Sheaf Toss, Hammer Throw and of course the world-famous Caber Toss!
There will also be lots of athletics with dedicated Highland Dance & Solo-Piping stages.
Traditionally Games are linked to a Scottish Clan but Helensburgh is unique as it is linked to two local Clans; the Colquhoun's and MacAulay's (whose tartan adorns the bottom of this website). The Clan Chiefs alternate the duties of Games Chieftain. Included in the games are the Heavies competition with events such as Tossing the Caber. The Heavies competition is now becoming a regular for the best Heavies in the UK and abroad. There are also Highland Dancing and Athletics races. The wonderful part is that both young and old alike can take part and because of the handicapping system for some races, different age groups can race against each other. The main events are open to all and have prize money for those taking part.
