Killin games are ‘best at­tended for years’

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

The rain stayed off this year for the Killin High­land Games and a great day was had by the vis­i­tors to the vil­lage.

Around 150 peo­ple from many parts of the world were in Killin for the Clan MacNab Gath­er­ing.

The clan are gath­ered to lead the first pa­rade at the Ed­in­burgh Tat­too, and they were joined by clan chief Jamie MacNab and his wife in the pa­rade.

The large pa­rade, led by Doune Pipe Band, moved from the Falls of Dochart to Breadal­bane Park to open the games.

The games com­mit­tee have en­cour­aged the chil­dren to be­come in­volved this year and, who knows, some may be­come the stars of the fu­ture. Games or­gan­iser Char­lie Grant said this year was the best at­tended for many years and thanked all his many helpers.
