The Mull Highland Games takes place annually in the picturesque town of Tobermory, the main population centre of the Hebridean Island of Mull. The island and its surroundings are steeped in history and abundant wildlife, including eagles, puffins, otters, whales, dolphins and much more.
Amidst the natural life and beauty of a geologically ancient landscape the islanders maintain and celebrate their unique history at the Games, which is just one of the many events where island communities come together.
The third Thursday after the first Monday in July every year is set in stone as marking the day of the Games. It is a day for old friends to get together and celebrate this Celtic Olympics while cheering on competitors.
It is a unique spectacle combining ancient and modern competitive and cultural events for both professionals and amateurs in a beautiful setting.
