Braemar Toyal Highland Gathering image

While there have been Gatherings of one sort or another at Braemar since the days of King Malcolm Canmore, nine hundred years ago, the Gathering has been run by BRHS since 1832 and from 2011 the Gathering has been run by Braemar Royal Highland Charity.

However during much of that time large crowds have come each year to acclaim their Monarch as Chieftain of the Braemar Gathering.

Every Gathering is a memorable occasion and that of 2014 will be no exception.

International athletes will be among those taking part in the "heavy" and "track" events.

Pipers and dancers will be of the usual high standard while teams from H.M. Forces will compete in the InterServices Unit Tug of War Championship and in the Services Medley Relay Race.

A Hill Race will again be run up Morrone and Scottish Pipe Bands will be to the fore with the customary Massed Pipe Bands appearing.

The Gathering, always held on the first Saturday in September, is world famous for its friendship and hospitality which we look forward to sharing with many visitors to our Park beneath.
