Ballater Highland Games


The Ballater Highland Games are held annually on the second Thursday in August in Monaltrie Park, Ballater and in 2020 the Games will be held on Thursday 13th August. Online booking is available via our website.

There have been Games held in Ballater since 1864, and, apart from the war years, the Games have continued uninterrupted until the present day.

Ballater Highland Games prides itself in having something for everyone, young and old alike.

On Games Day, as well as the traditional competitions, there are a number of varied trade and craft stands, a funfair for the youngsters, and food and drink outlets.

To complete the day, Beat Retreat by Pipe Bands is planned for 7pm on the Church Green in Ballater.
