Gordon Castle Highland Games

Speyside Artisans will be displaying their work at the Gordon Castle Highland Games and Country Fair on Sunday 22 May, 11am - 5pm.

Gordon Castle once hosted highland games, but that was in the 1930's and was one of the most prestigious events in the calender. Why it stopped, I don't know, but they have decided to resurrect it this year.

There will be the usual heavy weight competitions as well as highland dance, piping and tug o war. As it is a country fair, there will also be archery, clay pigeon shooting and not forgetting fishing - being situated on the River Spey, a perfect location. Lots of children activities, trade stalls, entertainment and refreshments - a great family day out.

Come along for a fun packed day. Why not have a go at spinning, Sally is always happy to answer all your questions about this traditional craft. She is an excellent spinner and prepares/dyes her own wool.

Here's hoping for good weather.
