Luss Highland Games set to return in July

The organizers of the Luss Highland Games have confirmed that the event will make a long-awaited return this summer.

A spokesperson said the committee was in “full planning mode” after holding its first meeting of the year in late January.

The event, which will be held on Saturday July 2, will see the gathering return for the first time since 2019 due to Covid-related cancellations.

Delighted to welcome visitors back to the playground, the committee is also encouraging members of local athletic clubs to attend and compete.

The games typically host competitions in running, cycling, wrestling, highland dancing, tubing and heavyweight events.

A call has been made for sponsors of this year’s competitions.

Half-page adverts in the program cost £70, with full pages available for £140.

Companies or individuals interested in providing sponsorship should contact the Luss Highland Gathering Facebook page.

Inquiries can also be sent using the contact form at lusshighlandgames.co.uk/contact-information.

Earlier this month, Highland Games organizers Helensburgh and Lomond announced that this event would also return to the region’s ‘what’s happening’ newspaper for 2022, with Burgh’s event set to take place in Helensburgh Cricket and Rugby Football Club ground in Ardencaple on Saturday 4th June.

And a report prepared for a West Dunbartonshire Council committee meeting this week revealed that the region’s event calendar for this year includes the Loch Lomond Highland Games, making a return to Moss O’ Balloch on Saturday July 16.

Decisions have yet to be announced on whether two other major events in Helensburgh and Lomond – the Bicentennial Pipe Band Championships in Helensburgh and the Rosneath Peninsula Highland Gathering – will return in 2022.
