Arisaig Highland Games


The venue is the scenic location of Traigh Farm, Arisaig with sweeping views across sandy beaches towards the Cuillins of Skye & the Small Isles of Eigg and Rhum.

The Games features a full list of traditional events including solo piping, throwing the hammer, tossing the caber, highland dancing, and a range of track and field events including children’s races.

We begin with a ceremonial parade, led by the Lochaber Schools Pipe Band. The focus then switches to Traigh with the Games officially opened by Ranald, 24th Captain of Clan Ranald.

Around the arena have a variety of side shows, exhibition tents, trade stalls and refreshment stands.

Admission charges for 2014 are at the bottom of this page:

And to round it all off, we finish with a traditional cèilidh dance in the village hall in the evening.

Arisaig lies 35 miles west of Fort William and 10 miles south of Mallaig. But never mind the distance – it’s only a step, after all. On the way you will follow closely the route taken by what has been called one of the greatest rail journeys of the world.

Stunning and breathtaking beauty taking you from the shadow of the UK’s highest mountain, past it’s most westerly railway station, close to Europe’s deepest loch, and over Europe’s shortest river, and all the while through some of the most amazing scenery you could ever hope to encounter. Jings!, you could live a lifetime in a single journey and still have time left over to enjoy Arisaig Games at Traigh.

And what a treasure is Traigh! White sandy beaches looking out over the magnificent vista of the Atlantic ocean, and our protectors, the Small Isles of Eigg, Rum, Muck, and Canna. It is here that we live. And it is these waters we share with the fishes. Where there’s whales, dolphins, and otter in the water. Where eagles soar, red deer roar, shearwaters fly, and herons stretch between water and sky.

This is our home. Fàilte Oirbh. Welcome. Come share it with us for a day or two.

Entrance Fees:- Adults £6, Children £3, Parking £2.  Cèilidh Dance £6 (evening).

(There are no competition fee's, but competitors pay standard admission rate for entry to the Games).
