Welcome to the official site of The Carmunnock International Highland Games. We look forward to seeing you again this year in the beautiful setting of Glasgow’s last remaining conservation village. The event is being held on SUNDAY 28th MAY 2023 at the King George V Playing Field in the centre of Carmunnock.

Gates open at 11.30am and the games begin at 12.30pm. Our Chieftain this year is Wout Zijlstra from Holland. A former world Highland Games champion, Wout was a podium finisher in the World’s Strongest Man 1998. We look forward to welcoming him to Carmunnock.

The games will will be judged by Carmunnock’s very own Highland Games and Strongman legend, Gregor Edmunds.


Other attractions include stalls selling refreshments and food, bar area with music, local businesses selling a wide range of gifts and goods, traditional Scottish pipe band and dancers, fabulous tribal sounds, not to mention lots of entertainment for the kids including bouncy castles, fun rides, races, tattoos, face painting, caricatures, sweets & cakes, ice-creams and jewelry!  We look forward to welcoming back the Saint Francis Pipe Band and Clann an Drumma for live traditional and tribal sounds throughout the day!
