Mey Highland & Cultural Games 2018

The Chieftain of the Mey Highland Games is HRH Prince Charles, the Duke of Rothesay, who stays at The Castle of Mey each year during the last week of July and the first week of August.  The Castle is closed to the public at this time.
The Tug-of-war contest, umpired by HRH Prince Charles was won by the Help for Heroes team to lots of grunts and groans from the contestants and cheers from the crowd! 

A first for Scottish Highland Games…

The     camaraderie     at the    Games    this    year was   a   joy   to   see,   with the     ‘Heavies’     Teams from   Help   for   Heroes and   USA’s   Uncle   Sam’s   Highlanders.         bringing adaptive   Highland   Games   to   Scotland   for   the first   time.      The   Royal   British   Legion   extended an   invitation   to   the   Team   to   compete   at   the Mey    Games.        The    Uncle    Sam’s    Highlanders will     educate     the     Royal     British     Legion     to incorporate    adaptive    athletes    into    Highland Games throughout the country.

           Liquid refreshment for HRH…

A wee dram of Wolfburn Malt Whisky!

Preened and poised all ready for the Dog Show, so many to judge, Best in Breed, Best in Show, waggiest tail!  The little dogs go first for a walk around the track while the larger dogs wait patiently.  It’s their turn for a walk first and then a faster trot. Goodness, it’s certainly a fitness test for their owners! 
The team of 11 Help for Heroes cyclists arrived after completing the NC500 in six days and cycled laps of honour to the cheering crowd, before meeting HRH Prince Charles.
The bar was raised as high as it would go and still cleared by Alex ‘The Tank’ from USA.
