Brodick Highland Games pulls in record crowds

Record crowds and a sunny afternoon turned the Brodick Highland Games into a fantastic day of fun at Ormidale Park last Saturday.

It was 20 years, almost to the day, since the Queen came to Arran to open the Highland Games, which was the first event at the new playing fields. So it was fitting, then, that the 2017 games saw a record crowd of 4,108 beating the previous record set two years ago.

And what a day of sight and sounds the large crowd had to enjoy. Four pipe bands this year gave the traditional opening to the games with the march along the shorefront led by Arran’s own pipe band followed by Kilbarchan, Kirkintilloch and Maybole pipe bands.

The four pipe bands entertain the crowds at Ormidale Park.
