Dancing

Highland dancing consists of three dances; the Highland Fling is said to mimic Red Deer on the hill, the Sword Dance and the Seann Triubhas which is a celebratory dance for the reintroduction of the kilt after its proscription in 1746.

Piping

Bagpipe music has come to symbolise the highland games and Scotland itself. As well as the solo piping competition which runs the whole day, pipe bands play many crowd-pleasing favourites. The piping competition takes most of the day.

The heavy and light events take most of the day.
