IN MOSS O' BALLOCH PARK, BALLOCH
Loch Lomond Highland Games are a traditional Scottish Highland Games situated in the village of Balloch at the southern end of Loch Lomond.
The games were started in 1967 by a group of local business men with an outlay of £500 to promote tourism in the Balloch area and now has prize money of over £15000.
The games are now one of the top three Highland Games in Scotland hosting the Scottish Highland Games Association World Heavyweight Championship and the 80 metre Scottish Sprint Championship.
Other events include Running , Cycling, Wrestling, Tug o War and the traditional heavy events of Tossing the Caber, Weight over the Bar, Throwing the Hammer, Ball and Weight and the Highland Dancing with dancers from 4 year old beginners to adults.
There is also a Pipe Band contest for grades 2, 3 and 4 and Drum Majors contests for both juvenile and adult.
Solo Piping contest now includes a Piobaireachd contest.
The games are also the only Scottish games to host a Triathlon which starts with a 600 metre swim in Loch Lomond followed by a 12.8 km cycle and a 3 km run finishing in the Games arena
So join us for a great day out in Balloch on the Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond.
Of course the games could not happen without the support of our sponsors and these are a few of them to which the games committee are grateful.
