25th July 2015, Northern Highlands:

Every summer, on the last Saturday in July, up to 5,000 visitors and locals flock to the village of Halkirk in Caithness for a day of traditional and spectacular Scottish sport. They come to watch over 100 competitors, many being national or world champions, challenging each other for various championship titles. The Games officially start at 12 noon with the traditional march of the pipe band and organising committee, from the village centre to the Games field at the Recreation Park. The last event is normally around 5.30pm and at 7.30pm the pipe band does a special parade in the main street for an hour. The day is usually completed with a grand marquee dance.
