International visitors flock to Cowal

Visitors from across the world are preparing to travel to Scotland to witness the thrills and spills of the world’s most spectacular highland games.

Cowal Highland Gathering (CHG) invariably welcomes spectators from the likes of the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. This year, tickets have also been snapped up by visitors from Russia, Switzerland and France – and a 26-strong group from Germany has even hired its own bus to make sure they get to the party on time!

CHG chair Ronnie Cairns said he was delighted by the level of international interest shown in the Gathering.

“The fact that we have people from so many countries buying tickets in advance shows what a great reputation this wonderful event has around the world,” he added.

“All the enquiries we’ve had from countries which might not have been represented in the past have ended up as sales not just of general admission tickets but also stadium seating tickets, which is fantastic.

“It’s a vote of confidence in the Gathering and our ability to put on a true Highland spectacle, and we’re very much looking forward to meeting – hopefully even exceeding – people’s expectations in that regard.”
