Montrose Highland Games
The Montrose Highland Games started in 1859 and they ran until 1929 when they were stopped due to a lack of funding. They were reconvened in 1978 and have been running annually on the 1st Sunday in August every year since.
The games begin at 10am and events take place throughout the day ending at around 5pm. There are a number of events which take place with athletics, dancing and music all part of the traditional programme. There is also a parade at 12.15 which goes through the high street and is lean by both the Rose Queen and Chieftain of the Games.
