Maclean's 104th Highland Games

Browsing around, I was fascinated to discover that Maclean will be holding its 104th Highland games over the weekend of 21 and 22 March 2008.

New England has a strong Scottish connection. One stream of settlers came from the highlands via the Hunter to the Clarence Valley. For a period there was even a gaelic newspaper.

A second, wealthier, stream came to take up land on the New England Tablelands with a special concentration around Glen Innes, another centre proud of its Scottish connections.
