Inverness Highland Games - 13

Throwing the weight for height is another important event at the Games.



For many first time visitors to the Inverness Games this is the biggest surprise of the afternoon. This is the event that everybody finds themselves drawn into and Inverness is famous on the international Highland Games circuit for the volume of roars of encouragement that the spectators produce!

To really appreciate what you are seeing you have got to try and lift one of these weights, so every now and then the crowd at the barrier is asked to pass the weight along the front. They find this very difficult!
