Virtual Highland 2020

We may not be physically on the grounds this year at Ingliston welcoming you all into our tent at the Highland, but who says we can’t give you a bit of entertainment at home? Whilst we know it won’t fully replace the social aspect, we hope you can get your households together for a bit of fun in the kitchen or on the couch!

See our event programme below with all activities launching over the show weekend, including cooking and butchery demonstrations, to fun quizzes and educational games.
