THE ARRAN BANNER 20 YEARS AGO
Saturday August 15, 1998
With the recent Brodick Highland Games still fresh in our memories, we take a look back at the 111th games, which were held 20 years ago at the Ormidale Park in the summer sunshine.
Still going strong, these pictures offer a glimpse into the games from yesteryear which are recent enough to be remembered by some of those who still visit the games today.
