5th Annual Scotland County Highland Games

Held at the historic John Blue Home and Historical Complex in Laurinburg, this is just the kind of event you would expect to find in the county that has one of the largest concentrations of Highland Scots in North America. It’s the premier celebration of Scottish and Celtic cultures in the Upper Cape Fear and Pee Dee regions.

If you’ve never experienced a Highland Games, you owe it to yourself to join us. Watch our lads compete in traditional events, such as tossing the caber (a massive tapered pine pole) and the sheaf toss - throwing a 20-pound bale of straw straight up using a pitchfork!

Of course, what would the games be without the piping and drumming, dancing and Tartan glory associated with this unique culture.
