Special Events

Birnam Highland Games host some unique special events.

The World Championship Haggis Eating Competition

Anyone, 18 or over, can enter this great competition free of charge... but hurry as there is a limit on numbers. Please register in the secretaries tent, which is located to the right of the main ring (just before the stalls).

The rules of engagement with the mighty Haggis are simple:

  1. Fastest to eat all the haggis wins the Grand Prize.
  2. The Judges decision is final.

The Kiltie Dash

This is a fun race open to everyone on the field wearing a kilt plus all Heavies, Pipers, Dancers, Stewards, etc

You'd be surprised how fast you can run with these lads chasing you...
