About

The Rannoch Highland Games and Gathering Week in and around RannochRannoch-gathering-piper.jpg

Each year there are week long festivities lead up to the Rannoch Highland Games and Gathering all held in this beautiful part of Highland Perthshire. Rannoch is very lightly populated, which adds to its attraction. Set within magnificent highland scenery of moorland, lochs and mountains once inhabited by clans.

The origins of the Rannoch Highland Games and Gathering date back to 1881, a typical gathering week includes Sunday Songs of Praise at the churches at Bridge of Gaur (the far end of Loch Rannoch from Kinloch Rannoch) and All Saints Church in Kinloch Rannoch, the following Sunday.

There will typically be exhibitions of local crafts, music one of the nights which features a band brought in for the occasion, a flower festival, culminating in the Rannoch Highland Games and Gathering in the village park at Kinloch Rannoch and the Gathering dance in the village hall starting at 9pm on the same night.Rannoch-gathering-food-tabl.jpg

The Rannoch Highland Games and Gathering is very much a locals gathering, there is a lovely atmosphere as everyone seems to know each other, with lots of crack and fun being had. As an outsider one sees a very different side to the large highland games which can often be very commercialised. Here you will find fabulous catering all cooked by locals, excellent burgers, mushrooms and sausages the likes of which you will not have tasted anywhere else.

We would highly recommend the Rannoch Highland Games and Gathering, if you can get there make sure you do.
