The 2016 Inverness Highland Games looks set to be one of the most memorable ever seen in the Highlands as we celebrate the very best of Scotland's traditional heritage at Bught Park.

Situated at the west end of our city, the Bught Park field is an enjoyable 15 minute walk from Inverness City Centre; and we are are very excited about being part of our City's exciting Gala weekend.2016 will see the Gala expand as the TruckNess event is relocated from Dores.

On Sunday we will be welcoming the participants in the first ever Inverness Wheelbarrow Grand Prix which is being organised by our friends at Inverness Culloden Rotary Club.

The Inverness Highland Games is sponsored by the Inverness Common Good Fund with great support from our local business community community.

Our Piping Competitions are sponsored by Nicol Manson and our ASN Events are sponsored by Frasers Quality Butchers.

To all our sponsors and our volunteers, and to all our competitors and performers and their families, a huge thank you in advance for your support for our event.

This year's Gala will feature everything that you would expect to see at at a traditional Highland Games plus you will be able to enjoy witnessing another attempt at the legendary Stonemason's Stone by our male heavies.

The 252 pound boulder over a 5 foot bar challenge was first attempted in 1822 and oh how our crowd roared their approval when Sinclair Patience succeeded in launching it over the bar last year.

See you there
The Committee
