The Rannoch Highland Gathering first held in 1881

The Friendly Gathering - This gathering is very much about a fun day for the locals, with a lot of friendliness, which you do not find at the larger Highland Games and Gatherings.

The venison and locally made burgers where superb

Double click on any of the photos to see them full size

The Rannoch Burgers and Chantal mushroomsThe Rannoch Barbeque - The larger games will often have outside caterers at the event, here at Rannoch they have superb local venison, park burgers and local Chantarel mushrooms.

Enjoying an excellent venison burger


You will find it hard to beat this locally prepared and cooked food. Many people turning up early to get the best choice before the crowds arrived. Well done to the caterers.


Some of the delicious home made cakes, biscuits and buns on offer



The catering marquee has an absolutely fabulous range of locally made cakes, buns, biscuits, tea and coffee. All freshly baked by the ladies behind the serving counter.

Local stalls raising money for local organisations

Local Rannoch organisations had a variety of stalls from books to locally grown fruit and vegetables and jams.

The clown with his invissible dogEntertainment in the form of the clown with his invisible dog, intrigued the youngster. I believe the clown was also responsible for the kids races and fun events. These proved to be very popular with low key organisation and fuss. All good fun.


Bag Pipers in the rain

The Vale of Atholl Pipe Band
