Highland Games, Glenfinnan, Scotland
The Glenfinnan Gathering is one of many Highland Games and Gatherings where Scots celebrate their heritage and traditions. It's also a comfortable homecoming for many. Glenfinnan is particularly notable because it is the site where Bonny Prince Charlie came ashore to rally the Highlanders to the cause of the Jacobites, which was to end disastrously at the Battle of Culloden. Events include the heavy events like the tossing of the caber, bagpipe and dancing competitions, tug of war, as well as the White Cockade Society which gathers to swear allegiance to the Jacobite cause, with a toast on the site where Prince Charlie stood. Also shown is dancing at the Glenfinnan Hotel in the evening.
