Lonach Highland Games return on the 26th August 2017 for their 175th Games. The Lonach Highland and Friendly Society was established by Sir Charles Forbes, 1st Baronet of Newe and Edinblassie (1773-1849). The members of the game are drawn from those who live in Strathdon. These members continue to fulfil the society’s original mission of preserving the Highland dress and “supporting loyal, peaceful, and manly conduct; and the promotion of social and benevolent feelings among the inhabitants of the district.”
The Lonach Games feature traditional Scottish Sports and Competitions including Pipe Bands, Tug-O-War, Hill Races Highland Dancing.
