Visitor Information

Mey Games
 

The Mey Games date for 2017 is still to be announced.

It is largely due to the patronage of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke
and Duchess of Rothesay that the Royal British Legion Mey Games continue to thrive. They are held in August every year in one of the Trust's fields just west of the village of Mey.

The Games include traditional events such as piping, Highland Dancing, tossing the caber and putting the shot. For many the highlight of the afternoon is the tug o'war final which is usually umpired by Prince Charles.
