Best Clan Tent Competition

Tents along Butternut Creek

Competition is open to each Clan having a tent at the Blairsville Scottish Festival and Highland Games. Clans are awarded points based on Tent originality, attractiveness, cordiality of  coveners, and availability of their Clan information. Clan member participation in the various BSFHG amateur athletics awards more points toward the total.

The winner of the Best Clan Tent for 2016 was Clan Donnachaidh

What is a Clan? The Gaelic word Clan means family or tribe.  Each clan has its own tartan which is worn in a kilt or scarf and members are fiercely loyal to the group. The reason for the strength of the Scottish clans can be summarized in a quote from a clansman who said, “I owe my Allegiance to the Land of my Birth, but I am first, last, and always a…. (your Clan name).”
