Research from Alasdair Macdonald has now uncovered Stirling’s place in highland games dates back to one of the earliest in Scotland.

We are excited to keep exploring where Stirling sits in history here and our research will continue on an ongoing basis.

The Stirling Highland Games committee would like to thank Alasdair Macdonald for his research on highland games in Scotland as well as the  University of Stirling MSc Environment, Heritage, and Policy dissertation project undertaken by Ian Mackintosh.
