If you'll be in Scotland in May and want to take in a Highland Games, then this is definitely a good one to go for. It's not very big, but has all the main ingredients - pipe bands, dancers, field events.

Because it's the first outdoor competition of the year, a lot of bands go to test how successful their winter preparations have been. The general area has some spectacular view across the Firth of Clyde.

Good luck! I do hope the weather is good for you. May can be great, but in the last couple of years the Gourock Games were so unlucky and that spoiled things for both competitors and spectators.

It increasingly occurs to me that answers to more and more questions are on Facebook. Not a substitute for TripAdvisor forums, obviously. But a good complementary resource nowadays.

The Gourock Highland Games due to take place tomorrow have been cancelled. The area where they'll be heard is waterlogged. Dancing competitions will be held in an indoor hall.
