Tickets for the Inverness Highland Games are now on sale

Posted by High Life Highland

There are only two weeks left and tickets for this year’s Inverness Highland Games are available now.

The Games, at Bught Park on Saturday July 16, will feature the magnificent heavyweights, athletics, pipes and drums and Highland dancing.

High Life Highland is organizing the event supported by the Inverness Highland Games Committee on behalf of the City of Inverness and Region Highland Council Events and Festivals Task Force, funded by the Inverness Fund common interest of Inverness.

Inverness Provost Glynis Campbell-Sinclair said: “This year’s Games promise to be a fantastic day of fun for our residents and visitors, and we look forward to showcasing the best the Highlands have to offer. .

“The Inverness Highland Games are a great community event and particularly deserving of the support given by the Inverness Common Good Fund as approved by the Inverness City Area Committee.”

The world’s strongest brothers – Tom and Luke Stoltman – will also join the party – making a guest appearance marking their first public outing since Tom was crowned the world’s strongest man for the second consecutive year.

Some of Inverness Highland Hames’ record holders date back over 40 years – will 2022 be the year that changes?
