Situated on the West Coast of Scotland around 30 miles South West of Glasgow, Ardrossan has hosted a Highland Games since 1979.
The games have always been held on the Second Sunday in June and are now located on the field of Ardrossan Academicals Rugby Football Club located on the border of the town with Saltcoats.
The first Ardrossan Highland Games took place on June 1979 and have taken place almost every year since.
The games are organised by a group of hard working volunteers from the local area who manage to create one of the major annual events in North Ayrshire.
This year the games were bigger and better than ever before with the sun shining on us all day long. With the usual Traditional Events, plus Re-enactment Events, Arty's Tartan Tales, Toss the Caber, the parade and our Saltcoats, Ardrossan & Stevenston Legion Branch stall and many more, we all enjoyed day.
Was made more special this year as our branch led the parade and had a super sized stall thanks to the local council. We'd like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who made a donation and came along for a cuppa and cake, and to the numerous volunteers who give their time and effort to ensure the event ran smoothly and safely for all who attended.
A big thanks also to the Trustees of the Memorial Fields for the use of the field, and the Competitors, Judges, Participants, other Stall Holders and arena attractions - all of whom contribute to making the Ardrossan Highland Games a prestigious annual event in the Highland Games Calendar, and also an important social event for our local Community.
And last - but not least - we are grateful to YOU, your family and friends for supporting your local Ardrossan Highland Games.
