The Gathering Committee is very pleased to announce that the Gathering will be taking place again this year on Saturday 27 August 2022 as we return to some normality in the Glens.
Whilst COVID remains with us, the associated risk appears now to be less than before with the majority of the population having been either double or triple vaccinated. In the circumstances, preparations for the day have been ongoing for a number of months.
We have fewer helpers this year so we would gratefully appreciate any help for an hour or more on the day or in the setting up of the field in advance, or the taking down of equipment in the days that follow. If you are fit and able, do get in touch with me - Rob - here - if you have not done so already.
We have a new page on our website marking 2021 as the 150th Anniversary of the Gathering which provides a little history for your interest - visit here...
In Strathardle and Glenshee we are proud of our traditions. Whilst the Gathering has not been held every year since 1871 (the last Gathering being the 138th Gathering in 2019), we plan to mark this Anniversary when we meet on the Bannerfield in August.
The march will start from outside the Village shop at 12.45pm and the Committee will once again be led onto the Bannerfield by our Chieftain, Sir Michael Nairn accompanied by the Coupar Angus Pipe Band.
In recognition of this milestone, we will not be charging entry for children or senior citizens this year. Entry for Adults is also being reduced to £5 per head.
