Grantown-On-Spey Highland Games 2012

Hello, my husband and I hope to visit the Grantown-On-Spey Highland games this year which I believe is on Sunday 26th August 2012. Can anybody who lives local confirm it is still on and how big it is. I can find no information on the internet which makes me think it is very small. I need to hire a car if we are going so need to know this information as soon as possible. we will be driving from Inverness and leaving games about 3.00 pm to make our flight home. Thanks for any information.

The Highland Games in Grantown (where I live) is related in size to the size of the town whose population is about 2.500 but usually a great day out with all the traditional events, pipe band etc. It would take you about 35 - 40 minutes to drive to Grantown from Inverness coming down the A9 and leaving the A9 at Carrbridge and following the signs to Grantown. There is parking close by in a field and hopefully the weather will be dry as muddy parking areas can cause a wee bit of a problem.

The Games start at 10.00 and are held in Heathfield Park at the edge of town near the Golf course. It will not be more than £10 pp to get in...

What else do you need to know?

It appears that date IS correct....I think it may have been cancelled last year due to bad weather so if the weather turns nasty again you may be best checking if its def. going ahead.
