The hundred and forty seventh
Annual Gathering of the GLENISLA HIGHLAND AND FRIENDLY SOCIETY
Friday 19th August 2016
For the preservation of the Language, Music, Games and Dress of the Highlands of Scotland.
2015 was a testing time for all involved in providing a warm and friendly Games. We were delighted to see so many competitors and visitors from overseas choosing to include Glenisla Games in their schedule, and thankful that the weather held out for us in what has been a very wet summer.
We said farewell to Lorna Davidson who has not just been our secretary for the last 20 years but also the mainstay of the Games preparation and event management along with her husband John on the day and throughout the rest of the year. We are most indebted to them both and wish them well in their west coast endevours.
We're very pleased to welcome Katy Ralston as our new secretary and look forward to supporting her in providing a great 2016 Games.
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 committee wish to extend their gratitude to all and hope to see you at the 147th Games which 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.
