On the evening before the Games, join us for our pre-games Ceilidh held on the Games field at Traigh. With live music, a licensed bar, hot food and free entry, the Tuesday evening event is intended to be a very relaxed, informal affair and is an ideal precursor to the Games the following day.
Wednesday 27th July
The Arisaig Games will open at 12 noon on Wednesday 27th July and this year the Games will feature the 12th annual Clan Ranald Gathering. A ceremonial march through the village led by Lochaber Schools Pipe Band will precede the Games.
The Games features a full list of traditional events including solo piping, throwing the hammer, tossing the caber, highland dancing, and a range of track and field events including children’s races.
Around the arena there will be a variety of side shows, exhibition tents, trade stalls and refreshment stands.
And to round it all off, we finish with a traditional cèilidh dance in the village hall in the evening.
