Crieff Highland Gathering
It's an event which dates back nearly 150 years. The Crieff Highland Gathering celebrates traditional Scottish customs with traditional Highland games competitions, including the sports Running, Youth Running, Cycling, Heavyweights, Light Field and Tug o War - as well as Pipe Band parades and Highland Dancing. It's a fabulous day out!
This year's Crieff Highland Gathering began under wet weather, but by the end, patches of sunlight appeared on the surrounding hills and Market Park got slowly bathed in bright evening sunlight.
For this reason perhaps, my best photos were taken at the end of the day as the performers were warming up, relaxed and on their way home.
Thank you all performers. What a fabulous celebration of our local community and traditional culture - enhanced by musical and sportive talent from around the world.
Special mention to Drums and Roses who got the field dancing with their drum and bagpipe covers of rock and Scottish pop covers!
