World class strongman coming to Brodick

This year the Brodick Highland Games will see one of the toughest fields of heavy athletes in the event’s history at Ormidale Park next Saturday.

Leading the field is seven-time Scotland’s strongest man Jamie Barr, who is also bringing the world famous McGlashan Stones, lifted by the likes of Jon Paul Sigmarson, Geoff Capes and Magnus Ver Magnuson, to name a few. There are five stones in total, spherical in shape, and ranging from 90kg-130kg. They are lifted from the ground onto large whisky barrels. This event has been the final event in the world’s strongest man competition for more than 20 years in one form or another.

Made from Scottish sandstone, the McGlashen Stones have travelled far and wide in their challenge to the world’s top strength athletes and are visiting Arran for the first time.
