|Where:||Birnam - at the Birnam Games Park off the A923|
|When:||Last Saturday in August|
|Time:||From 11 am onwards|
The Birnam Highland Games are held each year on the last Saturday in August and as well as all the events you could hope for in a traditional festival of this type, there are unique competitions like the World Championship Haggis Eating Competition and the Kiltie Dash. The former is open free of charge and the person who eats the haggis quickest, wins, while the latter is a fun race open to all kilt-wearers. Also expect piping, dancing, a funfair, field & track events and “heavy” events such as caber tossing and throwing the hammer. The games have been held annually since 1864.
In 2017 the games will be held on Saturday 26th August.
Parking is available on site for a modest charge and there are plenty of food choices (including haggis!).
