Annual San Diego Scottish Highland Games & Gathering of the Clans

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9Cd1au95X0]

Rival clansmen will test each other”s prowess at various sports – running, jumping, wrestling, or primitive forms of weight putting with stones, or dividing into roughly equal sides against each other in a very early form of camanachd or shinty. Lastly the clansmen will vie with each other in piping and in dancing, the pipers taking turns to demonstrate their skills and the clansmen to demonstrate their agility and neatness of movement by dancing complicated steps to the pipe music. These relaxations were in effect the forerunners of the modern Highland games.
