FANCY A skirl this Sunday? Then head for Hazlehead Park, where cabers will be tossed, reels danced and heavy hammers thrown to the poignant sound of bagpipes at the annual Aberdeen Highland Games. There's sword- dancing, a salute to the Chieftain, a display of massed pipe bands and lots of traditional Highland competitions. You can flex your muscles at the tug-of-war, and meet special guest TV Gladiator "Hunter" (aka James Crossley) before drinking a restorative wee dram - Glenfiddich is one of the sponsors.

Aberdeen Highland Games, Hazlehead Park, Aberdeen, on Sunday, 21 June, 10am-5pm. Admission: adults pounds 4, children pounds 2, family ticket pounds 10.
