While there have been Gatherings of one sort or another at Braemar since the days of King Malcolm Canmore, nine hundred years ago, the Gathering as we know it has been organised by the Braemar Royal Highland Society for only 187 years. But during much of that time large crowds have come each year to acclaim their Monarch as Chieftain of the Braemar Gathering.
Every Gathering is a memorable occasion. International athletes will be among those taking part in the "heavy" and "track" events. Pipers and dancers will be of the usual high standard while teams from H.M. Forces will compete in the Inter-Services Unit Tug of War Championship and in the Services Medley Relay Race. A Hill Race will again be run up Morrone.
Scottish Pipe Bands will be to the fore with the customary Massed Pipe Bands appearing. Meals, snacks and light refreshments are available at the Gathering.
Various members of the Royal Family including H.R.H. Queen Elizabeth the first of Scotland will be in attendance.
We recommend that passengers take appropriate clothing and umbrella in case of wet weather.
