See Strong Men Toss 140-Pound Cabers
Longs Peak Scottish-Irish Highland Festival, Inc. offers a full range of Scottish athletics in Estes Park, Colorado. The blacksmiths threw their hammers, woodcutters threw tree trunks, masons threw large stones, and fleet-footed men ran long and hard to demonstrate their fitness for battle as fighters and messengers. The origins of the Scottish athletic games are lost in the mists of time, but they still reflect the rugged strength of the
Highland dwellers who invented them.
