Skye's main traditional highland games event, run annually since 1877
It is one of the traditional Highland games with a two day piping competition. Heavy Field Events, Athletics and Highland Dancing are the other events.
The Games are one of the highlights of the Skye calendar and are enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year as well as the local population who come from all corners of the island, and beyond, to witness or to participate in this authentic expression of Highland tradition and culture.
Although the Skye Games in their present form were inaugurated in 1877, the tradition which they represent goes back hundreds of years before that, with clan celebrations that included fiercely-constested feats of strength and endurace, together with piping and other forms of entertainment similar to those that can be enjoyed at the games today.
The games website below all has some older articles about the history of the games and recollections which historians and fans of Highland Games will be interested in.
Adult tickets from £8 and children £4.
Tickets are ONLY bought on the day, no reservations or pre-booking.
The piping competition is held on the day before the main games
