Braemar Gathering

September 2nd, 2023

£5 – £15

The Braemar Gathering is always held on the first Saturday in September in The Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park in Braemar.

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 has been run in its present form since 1832. During much of that time large crowds have come each year to acclaim their Monarch as Chieftain of the Braemar Gathering.

Traditionally, the organisers of the Gathering were the Braemar Highland Society, originally established as the Braemar Wright Society in July 1815 and granted Royal status by Queen Victoria in1866. It is the oldest surviving Friendly Society in the UK.

Since 1848, The Gathering has been attended regularly by the reigning Monarch and members of the Royal Family. The foot races at The Gathering are the world’s oldest, having been organised on a regular basis since 1832.

During this event, you will get to experience the Massed Pipe Bands, Heavy events, Highland Dancing, Tug-o’-War, Track and Field, Solo Piping and many other traditions and activities associated with the culture and heritage of the Highland Gathering in the heart of Scotland.
