Airth Highland Games on a Small Group Tour of Scotland. Airth Games have a long history, going back to 1871 in fact. It may be that their
origins are even further buried in the mists of time than that for there is a local legend that they stem from the games and sports played by
Prince James's rebel soldiers camping in Airth in 1488, on their way to the battle of Sauchieburn. This is highly possible as the battlefield is only
about seven miles away and because of its position, Airth has always had soldiers tramping through it on their way to one battle or another.
