2015 will see the event continue to build on the range of family entertainment introduced last year which will give you a fantastic family day out.
We will still have the usual mix of Highland dancing, pipe bands, traditional wrestling, heavy athletics and ceilidh music but on top we are delighted to bring you

New for 2015 we will have the ’Favours and Flavours’ tent showcasing the best of Scotlands food, drink and crafts including whisky and gin tasting.
Also this year we have the first ever Gig at the Gathering on the Friday evening which is set to become a sell out.
As always there was a wide range of trade stands and catering units throughout the venue.
A Fantastic Family Fun Filled Day!
As the sun sets down the Firth of Clyde, the massed pipers and drummers play ‘Highland Laddie’ in unison. It’s an unforgettable experience.
