'St. Fillan's Games', 1845, (1946). Creator: Unknown

'St. Fillan's Games', 1845, (1946). Traditional highland games taking place near the village of St Fillans in Scotland. 'The St. Fillan's Highland Society...was, an association of the gentlemen of the west of Perthshire, who held an annual meeting at St. Fillan's...for the encouragement and exhibition of Highland games and costume. On these occasions, a large square stage was erected...and furnished with seats and awnings for the accommodation of the judges and visitors of rank...the games were usually opened with a competition among the pibroch performers, for a handsomely mounted Highland bagpipe. After this and some other minor prizes had been awarded, the competitors in reel and hornpipe dancing, and the ancient sword-dance claimed attention; afterwards followed putting the stone, - flinging the hammer, - leaping, - running, - wrestling, - target-shooting, - boat-rowing, - and a variety of other manly and athletic exercises. Prizes were also awarded for the best exhibitions of full Highland costume'. Illustration from "Scotland Illustrated in a Series of Eighty Views" by Professor Wilson.
