Mull Highland Games takes place annually above the picturesque town of Tobermory; the main Population centre of the Hebridean Island of Mull. The island and its surrounding islands are steeped in history and abundant wildlife; from Eagles, Puffins to Whales, dolphins and much more.

Amidst the natural life and beauty of a geologically ancient landscape the islanders maintain and celebrate their unique history. The Games is just one event of many where the communities of the islands come together.

The third Thursday after the first Monday in July every year is set in stone as marking the day of the Games. A day for old friends to get together and celebrate this Celtic Olympics while cheering competitors.

A unique spectacle combining ancient and modern events challenging professional and amateur competitors within a natural theatre.
