We are delighted that the fantastic traditional and cèilidh band Trail West are confirmed for the Games dance in the Astley Hall, Arisaig on Games night, Wednesday 25th July, 2018.

Hailing from the ‘wild wild’ Western Isles of Scotland, Trail West are a young band causing a storm on the Scottish music scene. With all band members hailing from the Hebridean Isles of Tiree and South Uist, the music and culture that they were raised in remains a pure and refreshing trademark in the sound of Trail West.

The band’s second album, ‘Rescattermastered’ represents the next step on the journey for this exciting west coast quartet.

The door open at 9:30pm, although it generally 10pm before the night gets fully underway.

All ages are welcome. However, under eighteens MUST be accompanied by an adult, and ID may be required to get in.

Admission is on the door at £10

We are delighted to confirm that Lochaber Schools Pipe Band will once again perform at Arisaig Highland Games this summer. The band will lead the ceremonial parade before the Games and will also perform on the field during the afternoon.

Lochaber Schools Pipe Band have been performing at Arisaig Games for over 30 years and are one of the highlights of the day for the visitors to our event.

The band was originally formed in 1970 as Lochaber Junior Pipe Band by its founder, Alex MacDonald. Following several name changes over the years, the band is now known as Lochaber Schools Pipe Band and is led by Margaret MacMaster.

The membership of the band consists of schoolchildren between 10 & 18 years of age within Lochaber district. The primary aim of LSPB is to promote and encourage  the enjoyment of traditional music making.

LSPB have become a recognised tourist attraction and perform regularly throughout the summer months for tourists and locals alike. They are also a popular attraction at many local events including Arisaig Games.
