What is Highland Games?
The simplest explanation I have tripped across to date is that they are field events with considerably more weight. My experience has been they are a joy. The events are feats of strength and skill that require you to never take yourself too seriously. The community of throwers are a welcoming, warm, and ever ready to help you become your best.
