The Bearsden & Milngavie Highland Games has 42 years of history behind it. What started as a small fundraising event in 1974 has developed into the biggest single day out in East Dunbartonshire. This family orientated event is immensely popular with the local community of Milngavie, Bearsden and the surrounding areas. We also attract visitors from all over the world.
THE EVENT IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC
Included in the menu of events throughout the day are all the usual traditional Highland Games events; Wrestling, Pipe Bands, Heavies, Arm Wrestling and Scottish Dancing. On top of that we have the Haggis Hurling World Championship. And great family events like Jellympic Games and Water Wars. There are fairground rides, bouncy castles and shows; on-site catering and beverage, as well as exhibitors and trade stalls.
The Bearsden & Milngavie Highland Games are organised by volunteers who give up their time free of charge, and any profits are donated to Funding Neuro our Charity partner.
We promise you a fantastic day out, so come along and enjoy the fun!
