All pictures by JASPERIMAGE Grant Park was alive with pipers, competitors and spectators as the Forres Highland Games made its return on Saturday. The heavy rain did not deter the crowds from gathering in the Moray town to welcome back the event after a two-year hiatus. In its 94th year, the games continued to embrace Scottish tradition with competitors taking part in Highland dancing, tug o’ war and solo piping among other popular events. Unique to the Forres Games is the Message Bike Race where spectators can get involved in the action by riding on an old traditional message bike with the chance of winning a trophy. Take a look at some of the best moments captured at the Forres Highland Games 2022.
