Bute Highland Games took place on August 22, 2015.

It’s been another successful year for Bute Highland Games, with visitors and competitors flocking to the island on Saturday (August 22) for the annual event.

While the sun wasn’t exactly splitting the sky, the Games’ organisers will undoubtedly be pleased that the day was - for the most part - dry for the programme of events.

Provost of Argyll and Bute, Len Scoullar, served as this year’s Chieftain, and told those present in his opening remarks that he was honoured to be asked to take on the ceremonial role.

There was a jam packed programme of events for spectators to enjoy, including the heavy events, 10K road race, Highland Dancing, junior athletics, wrestling, and much more.
