While there have been Gatherings of one sort or another at Braemar since the
days of King Malcolm Canmore, nine hundred years ago, the Gathering as we
know it has been organised by the Braemar Royal Highland Society for only
187 years. But during much of that time large crowds have come each year to
acclaim their Monarch as Chieftain of the Braemar Gathering.
Every Gathering is a memorable occasion. International athletes will be
among those taking part in the "heavy" and "track" events. Pipers and
dancers will be of the usual high standard while teams from H.M. Forces will
compete in the Inter-Services Unit Tug of War Championship and in the
Services Medley Relay Race. A Hill Race will again be run up Morrone.
Scottish Pipe Bands will be to the fore with the customary Massed Pipe Bands
appearing. Meals, snacks and light refreshments are available at the
Various members of the Royal Family including H.R.H. Queen Elizabeth the
first of Scotland will be in attendance.Further information:
