Chairman's Welcome to the 2014 Gathering
ROBERT MacINTYRE CHAIRMAN
Welcome to the Rosneath Peninsula Highland Gathering website and thank you for taking the time to find out more about our event. The 2014 Gathering will take place on Sunday 20th July at the Howie Park in Rosneath which is situated on the shores of the Gareloch near Helensburgh in Argyll & Bute, approximately 30 miles further up the River Clyde to north of Glasgow.
2014 is set to be a very exciting year for Scotland as it will be welcoming visitors from around the world to the Commonwealth Games, a wonderful international sporting event which takes place every four years, and will be held this year in Glasgow between 23rd July and 3rd August.
If you cannot manage to get tickets for the Commonwealth Games why not come and enjoy the Rosneath Gathering and all the fun of a very traditional Highland Games. Our Games will also offer visitors the chance to see competitors from around the world competing not just in the traditional heavy events of the Highland Games but also in the Solo Piping and Highland Dancing competitions.

We will ensure we keep the website updated with information and advice and if you have any questions about your visit to the Rosneath Gathering please use the enquiry form on this website and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
