Gourock Highland Games

About Gourock Highland Games

This year’s event will feature traditional heavy events like tossing the caber and hammer throwing and for the first time, will also include female competitors.

There will also be Highland dancing, pipe bands, arts and crafts stalls featuring local artisans, and a great selection of food and drink with something for all tastes.

Inverclyde Council’s library service will be delivering fun, family friendly activities throughout the day including their popular Bookbug sessions for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and families.

Youngsters can burn off some energy by taking part in Inverclyde Active Schools’ mini Highland Games, and there will be fun for the whole family including fair rides, a climbing wall, bungee trampolines and more.

The Gourock Highland Games are the first of the season and are organised in partnership with the Royal Scottish Highland Games Association (RSHGA).
