THE Killin Highland Games will not take place next month, due to ground works to the event’s venue.
This year’s games, organised for August 5, have been cancelled due to ongoing improvements to Breadalbane Park, where the games have been held for the last 23 years. The event, which annually attracts thousands of visitors, will now return next year.
Charlie Grant, one of the event organisers, said: ‘Our venue has undergone refurbishment and welcomed improvements. However, the ground needs time to dry out before it can take a volume of visitors and, unfortunately, this cannot take place before August 5.
‘ We are therefore very sorry that this year’s games cannot go ahead, but look forward to seeing everyone in 2016.’
Next year’s games are to be held on Wednesday August 3.
