About Carmunnock International Highland Games

We look forward to seeing you again this year on Sunday 27th May in the beautiful setting of Glasgow’s last remaining conservation village. The event is being held on SUNDAY 27th MAY 2018 at the King George V Playing Field in the centre of Carmunnock. Gates open at 11.30am and the games begin at 12.30pm.

In 2017, our Chieftain was none other than Scottish Boxing legend, Ricky Burns. Ricky has won world titles in 3 weight divisions – a staggering achievement. Thank you Ricky for fulfilling the role of Chieftain!

This year, along with the traditional Men’s International Highland Games we will see the return of Vadim’s Highland Warrior Challenge, featuring 8 highly trained individual contestants battling each other in 3 events – Log Fighting, Freestyle Combat & Stick Fighting

COME AND HAVE A GO!

Our hugely popular Community Challenge also returns with locals competing in 2 man teams in events such as “The 2-man Pole Push”, “Bale Rolling” & “Taxi Pull”. Why not enter your team now to challenge our reigning champions in 2018?! We also have Individual Events such as “Swingle Tree” and “The Manhood Stone Lift”. And it goes without saying, strictly for ladies only, the hugely popular “Welly Throw”! The kids can also get involved with races for all age groups and lots of activities!

Other attractions include stalls selling refreshments and food, bar area with live music by local musician Fozzy, local businesses selling a wide range of gifts and goods, traditional Scottish bagpipes and dancers, fabulous tribal sounds, not to mention lots of entertainment for the kids including bouncy castles, fun rides, races, tattoos, face painting, caricatures, sweets & cakes, ice-creams and jewellery!

All of these fantastic attractions, into what is already a hugely successful event, increase the scale and status of Carmunnock International Highland Games, and provide a real spectacle for everyone to enjoy! It really is a great event and at only £7 for adults and £4 for children & OAP’S, the best value games in Scotland! We look forward to seeing you in May!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Carmunnock International Highland Games are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
