"Always the 4th Saturday in August"

The Lonach Highland and Friendly Society was founded in 1823 by Sir Charles Forbes,

1st Baronet of Newe and Edinglassie (1773-1849).

Membership is drawn from the inhabitants of Strathdon, who continue to fulfil the society’s original mission of

preserving Highland dress and “supporting loyal, peaceful, and manly conduct; and the promotion of

social and benevolent feelings among the inhabitants of the district.”


The Lonach Gathering & Games is held in the village of Bellabeg, Strathdon.
