We look forward to seeing you at our first community Highland Gathering at Corriegarth Estate on Saturday 23rd July!  On this page we will keep you up to date with how you can get involved; whether by volunteering to help a community group, becoming a marshall, or hosting your own stand, or taking part in one of the competitive elements of the day - we will have baking, jam making and flower arranging competitions for all ages and an art competition for children, as well as a dog show for our four-legged friends!  There will be something here for everyone, and we hope you can join us.
