Scotland’s biggest highland games, Cowal Highland Gathering, will be broadcasted live this year via the internet thanks to a local community radio station.
Dunoon Community Radio will report live from Dunoon Stadium, the event venue, across the three days. The annual event will take place Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th August. The station’s presenters and production team are planning to broadcast a string of features and interviews with several competitors who are travelling from all over Scotland and the world to compete. Online listeners will be able to follow the action as it unfolds.
The station is run completely by volunteers and has a rich mixture of programmes to suit all tastes. It is managed, operated and maintained by people from the community. Its programmes are dedicated to promoting matters of local interest and concern, local activities & events and the Gaelic language and culture.
Those all around the world are invited to listen online here.
Cowal Highland Gathering, which hosts a string of family entertainment, attracts up to 23,000 visitors every year. Heavy athletes and more than 500 highland dancers and 3000 pipers travel from all over the world to compete to win championship titles.
