Tuesday 29th July
On the evening before the Games, join us for our pre-games Ceilidh held on the Games field at Traigh. With live music, a licensed bar, hot food and free entry, the Tuesday evening event is intended to be a very relaxed, informal affair and is an ideal precursor to the Games the following day.
Wednesday 30th July
The Arisaig Games open at 12 noon on Wednesday 30th July and this year the Games will feature a Clan Donald Gathering hosted by the home clan, Clan Ranald. Details on the route for the ceremonial march led by Lochaber Schools Pipe Band are available here. After the parade arrives at the field, the Games will then be officially opened by Ranald, 24th Captain of Clan Ranald.
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.
Around the arena there will be a variety of side shows, exhibition tents, trade stalls and refreshment stands.
And to round it all off, we finish with a traditional cèilidh dance in the village hall in the evening.
This is our home. Fàilte Oirbh. Welcome. Come share it with us for a day or two.
