An Introduction To Highland Games


An Introduction to the Highland Games - caber toss L



Rely on your skills, technique and strength and challenge your family to a private highland games competition, including tossing the caber and puttin’ the stane.



If you really want to have fun during your stay in Edinburgh, and if you want to let out all the energy you have, then why not try our Introduction To Highland Games. It’s physical, it’s fun, and it certainly is very Scottish.

On a field located outside the city center (40mn by car, transfer not included), meet your private teacher and learn about the history of the Highland Games and what they are all about. Soon enough, you will be tossing the caber and puttin’ the stane, among other things!

Once the introduction and games rules are set, it will be your turn to participate. Challenge yourselves and your family members through various physical activities that make up the famous Highland Games. From testing your skills and technique to a simple test of strength, you are in for a wonderful time with your family.

Note that this is quite physical, so make sure you wear loose, casual clothes!
