Heavy Events are spectacles of amazing feats of strength. The competitors are known as Heavies. Heavies are the superstars of Scottish Highland Games.
Scottish Highland Games differ from Highland Games abroad where Heavy Events are more prominently featured.
Scottish Highland Games are also a festival of piping, Highland dress, races, pipe bands, tug o war, culture and highland dancing.
So it’s surprisingly that Scottish Highland Games Heavies names are little known to the general public.
