  • Some time back i coincided with the gathering and it was great, not only the games and jousts but also the memorabilia some folks bring! From here to the Linn of Dee, and on with the motorcycle trip! Just great and great weather!
  • Great events with a great atmosphere. Also the queen usually goes however the press block your view. Weather could have been better but I guess that's Scotland
  • The Braemar Gathering is definitely worth a trip. It is the only Highland games where the Queen comes for a visit. We spent all day long watching and there was always something going on. Definitely recommend.
  • Went there in Mid-Late 1970's for Highland Games (Drummer in '100 Pipers' Pipe Band), staying at the Spittal Hotel, all expenses paid (almost). Stayed for a few days. Although pretty isolated, there was a lot to see locally with beautiful Scenery and some interesting Wildlife (Local, Seasonal)
