The Braemar Gathering is always held on the first Saturday in September in The Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park in Braemar.
While there have been Gatherings of one sort or another at Braemar since the days of King Malcolm Canmore nine hundred years ago, the Gathering has been run in its present form since 1832. During much of that time large crowds have come each year to acclaim their Monarch as Chieftain of the Braemar Gathering.
Traditionally, the organisers of the Gathering were the Braemar Highland Society, originally established as the Braemar Wright Society in July 1815 and granted Royal status by Queen Victoria in1866. It is the oldest surviving Friendly Society in the UK.
In 2002 the Society set up the Braemar Royal Highland Charity (BRHC), a wholly owned subsidiary, to undertake all of its charitable activities, including the organising of the annual Braemar Gathering.
Since 1848, The Gathering has been attended regularly by the reigning Monarch and members of the Royal Family. The foot races at The Gathering are the world’s oldest, having been organised on a regular basis since 1832.
The Braemar Royal Highland Charity organises and runs the Gathering and manages the Duke of Rothesay Highland Games Pavillion and Visitor Centre, which opened to the public in March 2019 and which houses heritage items dating back to the first games which took place under the Society auspices in 1832.
The charitable aims of the BRH Charity are the following:
to foster and promote local community development
to educate the general public about the history, traditions, sports, language and culture and heritage of Scotland
to organise the Braemar Gathering, and
to organise sporting other recreational events and make available to all comers
We need your support.
As a charity, we rely on voluntary donations from individuals, companies and sponsors to undertake all of this charitable work, including the organising of the annual Braemar Gathering. The impact of the Covid pandemic on our income has been significant, as a result of the regrettable but necessary decisions to cancel the Gatherings in 2020 and 2021. Your support has never been more important.
