Records show that the first Pitlochry Highland Games or Sports were held on 10th September 1852.

The evidence of this is a prize in the form of a brooch made of semi-precious stone and ormolu which bears the inscription ‘presented by Lady Feilden at the First Pitlochrie Games to Mr Charles Duff of Dunavourdie as the Best Player on the Highland Bagpipes 10th September 1852’.
