Scottish Children's Activities

The GMHG hosts experiences for children during the weekend. We recommended our Sunday 'Family Day at GMHG' for the most kid friendly family experience.

The GMHG Children's Tent is located just outside the main entrance to MacRae Meadows.  The ever-popular Passport Booklet can be found at the tent, which can be taken to each Clan Tent ot receive a stamp commemorating their trip to the Games.

Other activities include live readings, face painting, arts and crafts, scavenger hunt, entry to the GMHG Drawing Contest, and MORE!

Further your child's curiosity, knowledge and interest in their heritage by visiting the GMHG children's tent where complimentary fun and Activities await.

The Children's Athletics!

The St. Andrews Society of McRae Meadows is excited that Highland Wrestling is back for our children this year. We would like to thank the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games for their patronage and support of the children at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games. We thank the parents, participants, and especially the volunteers without which this event could not take place. A special thank you to Mrs. Nancy McKay for sponsoring a trophy for our youngest competitors.

All interested children and parents are welcome at the clinics. Consent forms will be available at each of the clinics. They must be completed prior to participation.
