CLANNA NAN GAIDHEAL RI GUALLIBH A CHEILE
The hundred and forty sixth
Annual Gathering of the GLENISLA HIGHLAND AND FRIENDLY SOCIETY
Friday 21st August 2015
For the preservation of the Language, Music, Games and Dress of the Highlands of Scotland.
2014 proved a warm and friendly Games meeting well kent faces from overseas - and just down the road, as well as welcoming new ones.
It was an extra special Games for the committe too, with a marriage the following day for James Gammell, avid competitor/supporter and son to one of our Presidents. Congratulations James and Debs!
The river saw some action from the Heavies field, with John Bridge saving the day - much to the entertainment of the crowd, see photos here.
Once again we owe a huge thanks to the support we received from those that attended, competed, organised, sponsored and judged. The friendly atmosphere, fine weather and the addition of our well attended local stalls and children's activities made for a memorable day.
The 2014 detailed results can be seen here. Please send us any photos you have of the day.
The committee wish to extend their gratitude to all and hope to see you at the 2015 gathering. The 147th Games will take place on Friday 19th August 2016.
We’re so busy every year running a lively and exciting Highland Games that we never have any pictures of the event! We would love to include your images in the programme for next year - along with accreditation. Your image may even end up on the front cover.
Glenisla is the most westerly of the Angus Glens, and the only one that may be driven as a through route. Its rich history includes links to the Cateran raids, illicit whisky distilling and the clan troubles between the Farquarsons and McCombies.
