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.
Craig Sinclair was the 2014 Grampian Highland Games Heavies Champion
Bruce Robb was the Champion in 2013

Braemar Gathering 2014
Braemar Gathering 2014 got off to a great start with a pleasant morning. In the afternoon The Gathering was hit by heavy rain, causing difficulties for the hill racers.
Fortunately the sun broke through before Her Majesty The Queen arrived, accompanied by Prince Charles and the Duke of Edinburgh.
