    Thanks for posting!

    Which Highland Games?

    BTW I'm guessing NC means North Carolina, but we do have dozens of other NC's here in the USA.

    Richard,

    The pictures are from the 2022 Grandfather Mountain Highland Games. @carolinanan117 and I had the Clan Sinclair tent there, as usual.

    Correct. Granfather Mountain Highland Games at Grandfather Mountain near Boone, NC.

    I terrorized the MacLeod, MacKay, and Maxwell tents mostly. But next time I will have to pop into Sinclair!

    I find I have to sign in to Google photos to see these and unfortunately for me I'm currently maintaining a Goo free home.

    Sorry. I would upload them all - but this website doesn't allow bulk upload. Nor does it allow files over a certain size (which is pretty much all of them). Especially the videos. And it will only allow 10 total in a post.

    Here's a taste.

    A few more. It's a shame you can't watch the vids, or hear the music, or watch the dancing. The spirit was wonderful. Everyone was having a great time.

    I am going to show my ignorance here, but purely out of interest, could this show/gathering/games be described as a Rhen( sorry about the spelling)Fair? From what I see and imagine, the attire shown in the pictures seem to indicate that it might be.

    ‘Ren’ short for ‘Renaissance’ and in my mind, most certainly.

    Thank you Bill, Renaissance attire is somewhat of a mystery to me in particular and I think probably, to most of Scotland in general!
