Which Highland game to choose for July 6th?

We will be leaving Edinburgh the morning of July 6th and will have a car. I had found Luss Loch Lomond Highland gathering and was planning to go. It looks like it is about 1.5-2 hour drive. I just found that the Thornton Highland Gathering are also happening on the 6th. Thornton looks to be 45 mins-1 hour from Edinburgh. Luss games have a website I can read a schedule of events, Thornton does not.

After the games we are driving to Stirling which can not be changed. I realize that I will be backtracking but it was the only day I found a game that worked with our schedule and where we are.

Is one game better then the other? Which would you go to?

Hi, jas3150,

Definitely Luss. I've been there. It's a good one. It's also a very easy drive from Luss to Stirling. Take the A82 south to the big roundabout at Balloch, then the A811 directly in to Stirling. It's about 40 miles.

Enjoy the gathering!

Another vote for Luss, although I haven't been to the Gathering. Luss is a very charming village on the Loch Lomond shore. As Mike indicated, the drive from there to Stirling should be pretty easy.
