The Governing Body of Traditional Highland Games in Scotland

Royal Scottish Highland Games Association

Patron: HRH The former Duke of Rothesay KG KT GCB OM

The Royal Scottish Highland Games Association (RSHGA) is the governing body of Traditional Highland Games in Scotland. It represents over 60 Highland Games in Scotland with several associate members overseas.

The organization was established in 1947 as the Scottish Games Association, with the general aim to further the cause of Highland Games, a goal we still work to today. We are recognised by the UK & Scottish Governments as the official sports governing body and we work at a strategic level on behalf of Highland Games. More information about the work we do is contained in the section covering work with the RSHGA.
