The Cowal Highland Gathering is the largest and most spectacular Highland Games in the world and is an event second to none in the Highland Games calendar.
From the very first gathering on 11th August 1894 Cowal has become a world famous institution and has gone from strength to strength. Cowal Gathering has continued and will continue to seek to foster the traditions and match the achievements of earlier generations and provide for enthusiasts and participants in everything.

For decades, thanks to Cowal’s reputation as a major promoter of Highland music, dance, and tradition, exiles over the world have turned to Dunoon for advice and practical assistance in setting up their own gatherings.

Now Cowal attracts more than 3500 competitors – many from Scottish Communities-in-exile as far flung as British Columbia (Canada) and New Zealand.
