The mountains in the north of Scotland do not just provide the location for the Queen's summer residence, they are also home to the famous Highland Games

Her Majesty, the Queen of England, goes to Braemar personally every year to attend the final of this highly singular event. The sporting events, such as tossing the caber and Scottish dancing to the music of bagpipes and other instruments, also serve as gatherings for the Scottish clans.

For clan members who are today scattered all over the world, these gatherings provide an annual opportunity to meet up. 360°- Geo met Captain Alwyne Farquharson, the Chief of Clan Farquharson, at his ancient Invercauld castle, where the games and the gathering take place.
