Leave Edinburgh behind and travel deep into the heart of Scotland to discover the picturesque towns and villages that host the Highland Games. You'll spend the day mingling with the locals, admiring the traditional Highland dress and trying Scottish specialities. The Highland Games date back over 900 years and are regarded as the ultimate test of strength between Clans.

You'll embrace your inner Scot as you see Highland dancing, pipe band display, hammer throwing, tug-of-war and, of course, the iconic caber tossing before heading back to Edinburgh.
