1988 Blantyre Highland Games


Sanny McVicar handed in these excellent photos of the 1988 Blantyre Highland Games. Pictured is Andy and Hercules the Bear, as well as some of the strongmen competing in the various strongman challenges.

Located in the large field behind Bardykes House, the games were popular each year attended by many thousands of people.
