Eigg Highland Games

An island 10 miles off the west coast of Scotland, Eigg was hosting their annual Highland Games, and the fictional crew of the Emerald took part in the events of the ‘games’, including Tossing the Caber, Hammer throwing, the 100 yard sprint and the 400 yard relay race.

For some fun stories surrounding this event, see chapter 32 and 33 of A storm in any port.

    1. Hi Michael
      I could not find a way to ‘follow’ this site, any idea? It would be great to form a connection in some way, and I am sure that the games would be of interest to the people here in Scotland.
