Organisers of Arisaig Highland Games have announced the cancellation of this year’s event due to the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Scheduled to take place over two days in the last week of July, the popular event was also due to feature the 16th staging of the Clan Ranald Gathering.

In a statement this week, organisers said: ‘We have been closely monitoring the current situation relating to COVID-19 and the related restrictions on events.

‘After careful consideration of all the advice made available by the Scottish Government and of our obligations to our volunteers, sponsors, patrons and the local community, we have taken the decision as a committee to cancel this year’s event.

‘While this is disappointing for everyone involved, we hope you will understand our decision and we will now turn our attention to returning in 2021. Thank you for your continued support of Arisaig Highland Games.’

Arisaig Highland Games and Clan Ranald Gathering attracts visitors from around the world, as well as from across the UK and is one of the highlights of the annual Highland games calendar.
