The Braemar Gathering is possibly the best-known of all the Highland Games events in Scotland. This is due to the fact that it coincides with the Royals' summer vacation at nearby Balmoral, and their tendency to attend the Games. Other attractions include: massed bands; Highland dancing; track and field events; hill race; tug o' war; piping contests. The Braemar Gathering is held every first Saturday in September.
