On Saturday, September 16, join the fun at the Scottish Games and Highland Gathering at Boone Hall Plantation.  There will be activities for the entire family, from Piping and Drumming competitions to Border Collie demonstrations.  While you are there, enjoy Scottish food and merchandise.

The music featured at this annual gathering of Scottish family clans, is a truly unique experience. The music of over 25 bagpipe bands echoes through the plantation’s large oaks and across scenic marshes with sounds that are truly classical Scottish fare. There is Highland Dancing that dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries, Scottish country dancing and fiddling, and Celtic rock bands dressed in kilts.

The Border Collie Demo features some of the most beautiful dogs in the world. The Border Collie was developed in the Border Country of Scotland, an area long known for its sheep industry. In fact, it has been said that without the Border Collie there would be no sheep industry. Today, this breed of dog is known the world over for its intelligence and livestock-working ability.

Boone Hall Plantation is located at 1235 Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant, about eight miles from downtown Charleston. For more information, call 843-884-4371, visit www.charlestonscots.org or www.boonehallplantation.com.
