Social Life

Lanark Highlanders Tug-of-War Challenge Cup

We do it a little differently in Lanark County, especially up North of 7 where the trees grow thicker and closer together and the southern places seem more distant. Highlanders sometimes gather like our namesakes used to: in barns, with fiddles, wearing kilts – it’s true. Important to the life of the club are the old ways of socialising: Robbie Burns Suppers, Ceilidhs, feats of strength competitions, singing songs and telling stories that one can almost believe. And nothing really beats a day at the derby!
