The Pitlochry Highland Games Committee has taken the very difficult decision to once again cancel this year’s Pitlochry Highland Games.
It is deeply disappointing to have to cancel for the second year running, as we we had hoped that with the success of the vaccine rollout across the UK and greatly reduced infection rates that we would have a better chance of holding the Games in September.
The Committee has a duty to ensure the safety of everyone involved with the Games, spectators and the wider community. Unfortunately, with the continued uncertainty of future restrictions and the course of the virus, this is not possible.
It goes without saying that we very much look forward to 2022 and welcoming everyone back to celebrate 170 years since our establishment.
