Due to the on-going uncertainties over the Covid-19 virus, the Killin Highland Games have been postponed for 12 months.
Games chairman, Charlie Grant says, “We take the health and safety of our local community, visitors, exhibitors and contestants very seriously and need to plan many months in advance. Although government restrictions may be lifted, we cannot take the risk that we may have to cancel the event at short notice, and as such, and with great regret, we have taken the decision to postpone the event until August 2021 when we hope that we can give a warm welcome to our followers and all highland games fans.”
The Killin Highland Games is one of the most popular highland games in the circuit and is very well attended due to its idyllic rural location combined with it relative proximity to the Central Belt. This will be the first time in 25 years that the games will not be proceeding.
The Killin Highland Games recognise that highland games events make a substantial contribution to the Scottish tourist industry and sincerely hope that visitors will be drawn back again in huge numbers when the pandemic crisis is over.
