With us well and truly in the midst’s of Summer now we are in Highland Games season. Argyll has a wealth of Highland Games that the visitor to Lagganmore House can attend for a real taste of Scottish culture. Saturday the 21st of July is the date for this years Taynuilt Games, just a short distance north of Oban the games really do have something for everybody http://www.taynuilthighlandgames.com/ With the Pipe Band playing throughout the day, piping and Highland Dancing competitions, track and the ever popular field events including the famous “tossing of the caber” there is much to watch and listen to. If joining in is your thing then some of the novelty events like climbing the pole or the 3 legged race might appeal. With rides for the wee ones, stalls with Artisan crafts as well as competitions, games, home baking etc being run to raise money for local charities there is lots to fill your day. A large variety of food and drinks suppliers mean that unless you want to take a wander up into the village you can spend all day on the field. However if a wee saunter to the village is your thing you can visit the Robins nest cafe or pick up some tasty treats at Grahams village store.
