Kilt clad lads gather for annual Scottish Highland festival and games

Posted on April 11, 2013 in Events.

With spring weather finally here we ready ourselves for a local event that celebrates the many scottish ancestors who settled in this region. The Rural Hill Scottish Festival & Loch Norman Highland Games take place on the family lands of John and Violet Davidson, whose parents emigrated to the colonies from Dundee, Scotland.  Set on over 200 acres of rolling farmland near the Catawba River , Rual Hill is the perfect setting for a day of Scottish sites, sounds, and smells.  From the bag piping competitions to the delicious Haggis at the festival food court, the kid’s zone, or the Historic encampment, there’s something for everyone.  The Festival takes place on April 20th & 21st.  For more information on the event go to -
