May I welcome you warmly to our one hundred and thirty-second Strathardle Highland Gathering. Let it be a day to meet friends, a day to compete, a day to enjoy, a day to make visitors welcome, a day to relax and a day to remember.
We are proud of our independent traditions in Strathardle and of none more so than the annual Gathering. As well as the Games, be sure to visit the Agricultural Show with a fine selection of local livestock and also the Home Industries Tent.
The Gathering is the result of months of preparation and attention to detail by a small team of dedicated volunteer members of the Committee. In hoping that you will enjoy a really good day out, may I take this opportunity to thank them for their selfless effort, initiative and enthusiasm.
Sir Michael Nairn - Chieftain
