Committee’s Welcome

Committee’s Welcome

Once again, the Ardrossan Highland Games Committee welcomes you to this, or 38th Games. We are confident that this year’s event will be as successful as previously and trust that all who attend will enjoy all there is to offer on the day.

We would extend our sincere thanks to all the local companies, businesses and individuals who contribute their help and support towards the costs involved in staging the Ardrossan Highland Games, and to the numerous volunteers who give their time and effort to ensure the event runs smoothly and safely for all who attend.

A big thank you also to Ardrossan Rugby Club Committee for allowing the use of the memorial Playing Field, and to the Lauriston hotel for providing a room and refreshments for our regular Committee Meetings. Also to all our competitors, judges, participants, stallholders and arena attractions – all of whom contribute to making Ardrossan Highland Games a prestigious annual event in the Highland Games Calendar.

And last – but not least – we are grateful to YOU, your family and friends for supporting your local Ardrossan Highland Games.

Getting the Games together is a small army of volunteers doing a huge range of things to make the Games a safe and enjoyable day out…
