9th Annual Scotland County Highland Games

    Laurinburg NC 28353


Held at the historic John Blue 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.

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. Beer and food vendors will be on-site.
