Sunday dawned with yet another great day in store.  The capricious mountain weather was cooperating, bathing the highlands in sunshine.  A fine day for parades and marches!   And march the clans did, with over 100 clans represented. Old, young, rugged and beautiful they came, flags unfurled, spirits high.   Around and around the East Meadow they marched followed on by the massed bands.

To be sure there were other events, musicans playing in the groves, athletic events unfolding out on the field, dancers flashing this way and that, still it was a more mellow pace.  There was plenty of time to enjoy the scenic splendor of the high country, to take in the pungent air filled with the scent of flowers and mountain laurel.

Grandfather Mountain, like perhaps no other highland game site, has the visual panorama of where the Scots have come from.  The rugged green peaks, lush valleys and free flowing streams provide the perfect staging for the gathering of the Scots and celebration of the Gaelic culture.
