VISTA, CA -When celebrating in times of peace one of the Highlanders’ favorite pastimes was the tainchel. For these “great hunts” very often several clans would combine. Chieftains would send word to the clansmen that such an event was planned and when and where they should assemble.highlandpix2 (1)

Next San Diego Scottish Highland Games – & Gathering of Clans -is being held June 27 & 28, 2015

Highland Games Kick Off with Tales and Legends of Scotland – Ancient feuds.  Misty moors.  Highland spirits.  Bagpipes.  Fiddles.  Magic.  Scottish legends have all that and more with a special storytelling show to kick off the annual San Diego Highland Games.  

After a successful hunt a great feast and celebration would be held. Then the rival clansmen would test each other’s prowess at various sports –running, jumping, wrestling, or primitive forms of weight putting with stones, or divided into roughly equal sides vying against each other in a very early form of camanachd or shinty. Lastly the clansmen would vie with each other in piping and in dancing, the pipers taking it in turns to demonstrate their skills and the clansmen to demonstrate their agility and neatness of movement by dancing complicated steps to the pipe music. These relaxations were in effect the forerunners of the modern Highland games.
