History

 

The Dornoch Highland Gathering began in 1887 and with the exception of the war years, it has been a focal point of the summer every year since. A day when old friends meet and new acquaintances are made.
 
We are very grateful for the support we have received from our Patrons, Sponsors, Members of the Public and the many trade and craft stances, including Herchers Amusements who all contribute to this special event.
 
Thanks to all the Committee members, Catering Staff, Bar Staff, Gate-keepers, Stewards Announcers, and all other helpers. Our thanks of course to the Competitors and their Judges.
 
It gives me great pleasure to welcome Mr Alastair Ross as our 2016 / 2017 Chieftain.
 
Our thanks go as usual to the management of Skibo Castle and their staff for the lovely display of flowers in front of the stand.
