Cowal High­land Gath­er­ing at Dunoon in Ar­gyll is the world’s largest High­land Games. On the last week­end of Au­gust each year tens of thou­sands flock to watch com­peti­tors toss the caber, shot-put the 34lb Cowal Stone, and throw the ham­mer, while High­land dancers com­pete for the world ti­tle and Pipe Bands bat­tle it out to be the best. Stay a lit­tle longer and you can ex­plore the area’s vi­brant forests, which in­clude At­lantic oak­woods, Cal­i­for­nian red­woods and the leaf-shad­owed gorge of Puck’s Glen.
