On Saturday 15th September, the Highland Games return to Kirkcaldy and – as before – we remain a world first … the only Highland Games be to staged on a beach! Our Waterfront provides the perfect stage from which to view this unique combination of culture, sport and entertainment.
Kirkcaldy’s Waterfront is set to present the fourth UK Beach Highland Games on Saturday 15th September, hosted by Kirkcaldy 4 All. It is an event in the town’s calendar that’s not to be missed. What’s more, it is free to watch. Lots is planned, not only to entertain folk of all ages but to encourage participation: pipe bands, a parade, Highland dancing, athletic running events and traditional heavy events.
The fun starts at 10.30am and finishes at 3pm – with some flexibility, depending on tide times!
The storm road will also be home to local stall holders. After the Games, make the most of the day and wander back to the town centre to one of Kirkcaldy’s numerous cafes, restaurants and bars. The Games are a spectacle like no other set against the stunning Firth of Forth – colourful displays of dance together with races, the evocative pipes and more.
Like a stall at the event?
We invite local businesses and organisations to take part by having stalls on the waterfront during the event. We will organise the required traders’ licences for the day: if you choose to take part, all you need to supply is your own stall/tables and staffing. Similar to previous years, we will permit cars to be parked against the road side to enable easy access for setting up and clearing away the stalls. This will be strictly cars only: any larger vehicles will not be allowed due to the need to keep the route clear for emergency vehicle access at all times.
