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.
