It was King Malcolm III (1057-93) who started the Scottish Highland Games nearly a thousand years ago at Craig Choinich by Braemar near Balmoral, in order to sort out the smartest, swiftest, strongest, most nimble, accurate, agile and coordinated Cumbrians with the most prowess, endurance, stamina and character from amongst his subjects! These became the King’s Royal Inner Circle of protectors and couriers when going into battle.
Join us for our 92nd Annual Highland Games, to be held at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut.
