Heavy athleticism is a popular game where physical strength is a top skill for athletes. You’ll also find events like the caber toss, hammer throw, stone carry, and much more. There are over 65 clans participating in this year's festival. You’ll be able to meet with families and see the clan tartans. A tartan is as distinguishable as a clan name. Enjoy whisky tasting, beer tasting, mixology of scotch, and a tartan dinner right here at the Mountain Club on Loon!

Plus, did you know that our Black Diamond Pub is the official pub of the New Hampshire Highland Games? Read all about our Black Diamond Pub in, “We’re Getting Local with our New Summer Menu.”

Along with the fantastic games, visitor’s head to the Mountain Club on Loon in Fall to experience the changing of landscape colors. The leaves transform from a glorious green to vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow.

To experience the fall colors, either hike or drive Loon Mountain. This is a great time to explore the mountains when the leaves start to fall. It offers a wonderful photographic backdrop to any picture perfect moment, you’ll have.


Whether stop by to see the fall colors, or want to try some Scottish Haggis, enjoy your mid-September weekend at the Mountain Club on Loon and learn all about Scottish culture!
