Clan Grant Gathering

The Abernethy Highland Games are the home to the Clan Grant Gathering when Grants from all over Scotland and the rest of the world gather here to celebrate their roots. The Massed Pipe Bands march over the main Telford bridge in the centre of the village bringing members of Clan Grant, headed by Sir James Grant of Grant, Lord Strathspey, into the arena.

The Clan Grant tent on the Games field is where all Clan Grant members are welcomed as old friends and offered warm Highland hospitality.

Recent history

In 2005 the 125th Abernethy Games played host to the second International Gathering of the Clan Grant Society.
