Chieftain’s Gathering

STIRLING HIGHLAND GAMES | SINCE 1870

The Chieftains Gathering is where all our invited guests, past and present gather during the day to meet up, catch up and enjoy some Scottish hospitality. We would like to thank our Host Partner, Stirling Sports Village in helping make this happen.

Without our Funding Partners helping support our work to deliver this leading annual culture sporting event we would seriously struggle to attract the quality of event competition to Stirling and Scotland, including offering the crucial practical learning aspect provided to young people on the FVSE CIC training programme.

Annual invites are sent out to a select number of Past Chieftains, Funding Partners and selected guests who we wish to celebrate this ongoing traditional and cultural event.

Its a full day of entertainment for everyone to enjoy.
