New Highland Games Centre in Braemar to be completed by September 2018
Work is continuing on a new Highland Games Centre at the site of the Braemar Gathering, which will chart the history of Highland Games in Scotland.
The team behind the £2.2 million project hope that the building will be completed in time for the 2018 Games on 1 September, which will include visits from the Canadian Massed Pipe Bands and the RAF as part of the latter's centenary celebrations.
Call for memorabilia
Organisers are still still collecting exhibits for the internal displays. If you have any old photos, medals, cups, highlander uniforms or other memorabilia that you think would help please get in touch with the Secretary by email.
Exhibits will include paraphernalia from Highland Games and Gatherings, such as medals and trophies, and partner The Scottish Tartans Authority will also contribute to the collection. It is hoped that the building will represent a valuable resource for organisers of Highland Games across the world.
