About this event

Established in 1823, by Sir Charles Forbes, 1st Baronet of Newe and Edinglassie, the Lonach Highland and Friendly Society is a charitable organisation based in Strathdon, Aberdeenshire.

The society organises the annual Lonach Gathering at Bellabeg Park, Strathdon, which is held on the fourth Saturday of August. The main attraction at the gathering is the march of the Lonach Highlanders, a unique body of non-military men.

The Lonach Gathering & Games is held in the village of Bellabeg, Strathdon which is situated on the A944, approximately 42 miles from Aberdeen.

Parking is free of charge and our Traffic Wardens will direct you to the appropriate car parking areas. Disabled parking provided

There are many exciting events including heavy and light events, piping, highland dancing and an adult and children's race.

We also have a family ceilidh which takes place on the evening of the Games. Further information on this can be found on our website -
