Our History

With its inaugural event in 1971, the Charleston Scottish Games & Highland Gathering is the second oldest event of its kind in the southeast. Drawing visitors from around the country and abroad, the Games brings in over 8,000 guests, immersing visitors in Scottish heritage and history.

“Where Scottish History & Heritage Go Hand in Hand”

The Scottish people have made a large impact on South Carolina, helping it to become the state it is today. From music and food, to political and scientific contributions, Scottish heritage is something to be celebrated and promoted in modern life. The Charleston Scottish Games and Highland Gathering is on a mission to do just that. The Games showcases Scottish traditions, culture, and history in a fun and interactive way for people all over the world.

We need your help!

As many of you know, we had to cancel the 50th-anniversary Charleston Scottish Games and Highland Gathering due to the unprecedented wind that began up-rooting our tents and creating a dangerous environment for our guests. The safety and well-being of our guests will always come first, but our decision to cancel the Games came at a cost. The Scottish Society of Charleston is now in debt, and the future of the Charleston Scottish Games is at risk. Please help by donating to the Scottish Society of Charleston, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, to ensure the Games continue here in the Lowcountry for another 50 years.
We thank you for your support. Alba gu brath!
