The Highland Games on Grandfather Mountain

Highlander Games on Grandfather MountainEvery year the Scottish Highland Games are reenacted on Grandfather Mountain near Linville . The display is symbolic of the Celtic tribes of the pre-Christian era and occurs in McRae Meadows. Many highlanders came to North Carolina during the early 1700s. The first known settlement was ca 1732 on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp. As in the instance of so many immigrants in those days, the Scotch-Irish were poor people who sold everything they had to pay for passage to America.
