Junior Highland Games
On Saturday Gordonstoun Junior School held their annual Junior Highland Games for primary schools, this year sponsored by Specsavers.
We were delighted to welcome many teams and the competition was thrilling. Throughout the day children took part in traditional Highland sporting activities such as Tossing the Caber, Throwing the Haggis and Tug o' War.
