Held October 6, 2018, the Ninth Annual Scotland County Highland Games will be held on the grounds of the North Carolina Rural Heritage Center in Laurinburg. (nc-rural-heritage.com). The site includes the John Blue House and Heritage Village which highlights several historic Scottish-American homesteads, as well as a working antebellum cotton gin, and a general store. The games site provides an immersion into the Scottish-American historical experience of this region.

If you’ve never experienced a Highland Games, you owe it to yourself to join us Saturday, October 6th for the Scotland County Highland Games. Watch our athletes compete in traditional events, such as tossing the Scottish hammer and stone throws. Ever heard of the sheaf toss? That’s throwing a 20-pound bail of straw straight up over a high bar using a pitchfork. For the little pros out there, we have events that kids love to try.

A full spectrum of events will be offered at the Games: Clan and Society tents, food and merchandise vendors, athletic competitions, Scottish musical and dance entertainment, sheep dog demonstrations, and EUSPBA sanctioned solo piping and drumming competitions. Again this year will be pipe and drum band competition which will bring bands in from all over the southeast and provide spectators a first-hand look at the pageantry and precision of pipe bands.

Advanced ticket sales are $12 for adults, $3 for children ($15 and $5 day of the event). All ticket sales are final.
