Cowal Highland Gathering 2014 taking shape

The organisers of the world’s most spectacular Highland games are confident the 2014 event will be one to remember.

Plans for this year’s 2014 Cowal Highland Gathering are already at an advanced stage, and chair Ronnie Cairns said this year’s event is shaping up to be a big hit with contestants and spectators alike.

“We have had some very positive meetings with our partner organisations, and I’m delighted with the progress we’re making towards finalising the details of the 2014 Gathering,” he added.

“In particular, we are working closely with the Glasgow and West of Scotland Pipe Band Association in a bid to enhance the pipe band competition and bring the fun back for the many hundreds of pipe bandsmen and women from all over the world who come to compete here.

“We’ve taken on board suggestions made by both competitors and spectators, and we also have a few other ideas up our sleeve to ensure that the 2014 Cowal Highland Gathering will once again prove to be one of Scotland’s top family events.

“We look forward to announcing the details of this year’s games over the next few months, but it will of course include the usual mix of Highland dancing, pipe bands, traditional wrestling, heavy athletics, ceilidh music and children’s entertainment.

“I’d encourage everyone to keep the last weekend in August free so they can come and join us for what promises to be a spectacular occasion.”

This year’s event takes place from Thursday 28 to Saturday 30 August.
