2016 DATES JUNE 1-5

It's that time of year again, when folks are marking their calendars to make sure they don't miss the GATHERING OF THE SCOTS HIGHLAND GAMES AND FESTIVAL.

This year, we are breaking with tradition and holding the games a week later in the spring.  

This year we will hold the pre-game events June 1st, 2nd and 3rd, with the big day on Saturday 4 June, winding down on Sunday 5 June, with the "Kirkin'" o' the Tartan.

This is our Fifteenth year, and we are already planning to make this  year's games one for the books!

We are booking more bands,  planning more workshops and rarer whiskies.

The "Birds of Prey" demonstration that stole the day last year is already booked!



Archery at The Gathering

While at The Gathering, take a few minutes and visit the archery display and let the experts show you more about this fascinating sport! You may even decide to try your hand at shooting your first arrows!

Long-bows, re-curves and compounds will take the field at the Gathering of the Scots in 2015!!  Under the expert guidance of long-time bowman Dave Green from Tobique Narrows and members of our newly-formed Twin River Archery Club in Perth-Andover, visitor to this year’s festival will get the opportunity to try their hands at this ancient sport of kings!

“Recent interest in the sport of archery has been encouraging”, says festival Events Chairman Rod MacIntosh.  “We have a popular new archery club in the area that has seen high numbers of participation.  The Gathering of the Scots has implemented their new archery venue to help introduce & educate festival visitors on some of the details of this exciting sport.”


Get to bed!

You will need your rest because it all begins tomorrow! The games begin at 3:00 PM when the Masters and Amateurs begin to throw. And if that isn't enough, stop by The Castle Inn for the "PICAROON’S CASTLE CEILIDH". Music and more starting at 7:00 PM. The Gathering is upon us!
