the inverness highland games is a very popular event that attracts locals young and old aswell as masses of tourists who flock to see the traditional march of the pipe band the to games site at bught park arena.
The Inverness Games has a tradition of trying to include something new every year and has now grown to include Piping Competitions, Dancing Competitions, Cycling Competitions, a Highland Craft Fair, a Children?s Fun Fair, Tug of War, and a Massed Pipe Band
The highlight of the day is the ever-popular ?Tossing of the Caber?. The 16 foot plus caber weighs more than a man and it is a feat of enormous skill as well as extraordinary strength to hurl the caber so it turns over and lands in the required 12 o?clock position.

Address: bught park arena, inverness
