Still very much a work in progress. If there's anything else you'd like to see, my address is listed below.


This site (such as it is) will focus on athletics, specifically heavy events, in the highland games. Here are a couple of links to try if you're interested in piping or dancing.

Note: Masters records are kept at ScottishMasters.org. However, masters records for the 56lb weight for height, and 20lb sheaf are not being kept on that site, since the standard weights in masters competitions are 42lbs and 16lbs. These records are now being kept here, on the main records page. Accurate masters records for the 56lb weight for distance may be difficult or impossible to compile, but I'm looking into it.
