'BEST GAMES EVER' - 2016 CARMUNNOCK HIGHLAND GAMES - THANKS TO EVERYBODY FOR COMING ALONG AND MAKING IT SUCH A GREAT DAY! Hopefully see you again on SUNDAY 28th MAY 2017 - at King George V Playing Field, Carmunnock.
Welcome to the official site of The Carmunnock International Highland Games. We look forward to seeing you again in 2017 in the beautiful setting of Glasgow's last remaining conservation village. The event is being held on the SUNDAY 28th MAY at the King George V Playing Field in the centre of Carmunnock. Gates open at 11.30am and the games begin at 12.30pm. In 2016, the games were opened by actor, writer and comedian Sanjeev Kohli - fulfilling the role of Carmunnock Highland Games chieftain. Thanks again Sanjeev!
In 2016, along with the traditional Men's International Highland Games we saw the return of Vadim's Highland Warrior Challenge, featuring 8 highly trained individual contestants battling each other in 3 events - Log Fighting, Freestyle Combat & Stick Fighting (for more information see the 'About' section).
Our hugely popular Community Challenge also saw locals competing in 2 man teams in events such as "The 2-man Pole Push", "Bale Rolling" & "Tyre Tossing". Why not enter your team now to challenge our reigning champions? And it goes without saying, strictly for ladies only, we enjoyed the hugely popular "Welly Throw"! For the kids we had the 'Mini Highland Games' - a mini assault course for the younger vikings amongst us to compete in a fun way!
Other attractions included stalls selling refreshments and food, a fully licensed beer garden and bar area with live music, local businesses selling a wide range of gifts and goods, traditional Scottish bagpipes and dancers including fabulous tribal sounds, not to mention lots of entertainment for the kids including bouncy castles, fun rides, races, tattoos, face painting, caricatures, sweets & cakes, ice-creams and jewellery!
All of these fantastic attractions, into what is already a hugely successful event, increased the scale and status of Carmunnock International Highland Games, and provided a real spectacle for everyone to enjoy! It really was a great event and at only £6 for adults and £4 for children & OAP'S, the best value games in Scotland! We look forward to seeing you in 2017! Keep an eye on our 'News' section for regular updates and announcements.
