Scottish clansmen from far and wide will descend on Salado from November 9 - 11 for the 57th Scottish Gathering and Highland Games, and they invite the public to join the fun.

Over three days everything great about the land that gave the world kilts and William Wallace will be celebrated, from feats of strength, to hearty Scottish food.

The calling of the clans will start off the event on Friday with a precession of clansmen with torches. The Scottish games will take place on Saturday with a women's and children's division included in the caber toss this year. And on Sunday a pet parade and pipe band competition will round out events.
