Stirling Highland Games not only showcases traditional Highland games competitions like tossing the caber and Highland dancing, it also offers visitors an affordable ‘festival style’ day out with lots to see and do including a Traders Market, on-site Heritage Walking Tour, an Activities Challenge area for the kids, fantastic Food and Drink experience with street food traders, craft beers, Gin bar and a host of Scottish Food & Drinks producers.
