Its Games season!
Some say that Highland Games originated as a clan chieftain’s way of choosing the best bodyguards and the fittest of fighting men. Not all the chief’s requirements were warlike – musicians and dancers were important for the prestige of his household. Choosing staff and supporters was done by holding competitions – good runners for couriers, strong men for defence and a range of entertainers to while away the winter evenings.
Many events at today’s Highland Games still use items which would have been part of everyday life in the Highlands of old eg. round stones from river beds probably provided the original shot-putts while a Scots pine trunk shorn of its branches is still the caber as tossed today.
The games take place across the region through the spring and into late summer. A list of what is happening, where and when can be found here.

Proud to work with CAMRA
Real Ales are made from only fresh and natural ingredients; several hundred breweries make their own unique brews giving literally thousands of different flavours.
Cask conditioned Real Ale is a living product. It requires love, respect and attention to ensure the beer matures into the perfect pint. Like wines, food can enhance the flavours found within the Real Ales. Our restaurant is the ideal place to sample some freshly prepared local produce along with a flavoursome pint of Ale.
The Sunninghill is proud of our reputation for conditioned real ales and are pleased to be associated with CAMRA (Campaign For Real Ales). For several years we have been recommended in the Good Beer Guide for our conditioned Ales and have different Ales on tap from week to week. If you have yet to try Real Ale why not sit in our relaxing and friendly bar and sample what we have on offer.
