ARGYLLSHIRE GATHERING

ARGYLLSHIRE GATHERING

The Argyllshire Gathering was started in 1871 when several landowners and families of Argyll decided they should get together annually to socialise and to compete against each other. It was the forerunner of Highland Games as we know them today. Since then, the association has developed and is made up of members who have a strong connection with Argyll and are keen to promote Argyll both locally and on the broader world. An annual ball and dance is amongst other social gatherings and dinners throughout the year.
