The organisers of Luss Highland Games have confirmed the event will make a long-awaited return this summer.

A spokesperson said the committee is in “full planning mode” after holding its first meeting of the year in late January.

The event, which will be held on Saturday, July 2, will see the gathering return for the first time since 2019 due to Covid-related cancellations.

Excited to welcome visitors to the games field once again, the committee is also encouraging members of local athletics clubs to attend and compete.

The games usually hosts running, cycling, wrestling, Highland dancing, piping, and heavy events competitions.

An appeal has been issued for sponsors for this year’s competitions.

Half page adverts in the programme cost £70, with full pages available for £140.

Businesses or individuals interested in providing sponsorship are asked to contact the Luss Highland Gathering Facebook page.

Earlier this month the organisers of the Helensburgh and Lomond Highland Games announced that, that event, too, would be making a return to the area’s ‘what’s on’ diary for 2022, with the Burgh event scheduled to take place at Helensburgh Cricket and Rugby Football Club’s grounds at Ardencaple on Saturday, June 4.

And a report prepared for a West Dunbartonshire Council committee meeting this week revealed that, that area’s events calendar for this year includes the Loch Lomond Highland Games, making a return to Moss O’ Balloch on Saturday, July 16.

Decisions have yet to be announced on whether two other major events in Helensburgh and Lomond – the Bicentenary Pipe Band Championships in Helensburgh and the Rosneath Peninsula Highland Gathering – will return in 2022.
