The Scottish Games will include a variety of activities, some of which are exclusively for adults and others are aimed at entire families. Events included in the festival are Highland games for adults, a shortbread competition, dog agility demonstrations, and bagpiping instructions. Brochure printing services from local printing companies can inform guests of the Scottish festival of activities and schedules for the weekend-long event.
