The great Scottish interactive bond building experience
View our new Highland Games video here
Historically, Clan chiefs would hold highland games to test their men for certain skills. On seeing their performance, the chief would decide who was best suited for different tasks based on their abilities. So the fastest runner would become the messenger, the strongest men would become the bodyguards etc.
In 21st century Scotland, these highland games are still enjoyed by athletes who train to compete for Scottish and international prizes. Highland games are also used for wedding bond building, and no prior training is necessary.
Reel Time put these highland game experiences on for wedding parties. Often the day before their wedding, to help get guests interacting with each other. We find that these are especially popular for international parties coming to Scotland for their wedding, as they often have a few days of activities to plan.
We bring in the athletes who show your guests how to perform the different activities, then the participants are split up into different clans (teams) to compete for prizes.
Reel Time can provide a venue for the Highland games to be held around the Edinburgh area, in the borders, Perth and St Andrews. If you are staying in a suitable location, we can bring the highland games to your Scottish hotel or country estate.
A typical highland games last around 3 hours.
Refreshments and a waterproof poncho are included for guests comfort. We can also provide a lunch stop or BBQ for your guests.
Reel Time Events holds full public liability insurance for these events.
