The tradition of Highland Games is many hundreds of years old. Chiefs of Scottish clans used games to test the strength and agility of persons who seemed to hold promise for positions of military leadership. What was at first serious competition for such positions, developed later into a festive occasion in which the display of physical prowess played a leading part.
