Lost and Found:
- Found items will be collected and taken to the Souvenier Tent on the main field. To reclaim items left at the end of the day, send a message to us through our Contact Page.
- There will be food and drink available for purchase on the field, the day of the games. Outside food and non-alcoholic drink are allowed, but we hope you support our vendors by purchasing their Scottish foods.
- Portland Highland Games are family friendly. We recommend that you bring a stroller for the little ones. There is a little bit of walking between the multiple activity fields. A stroller is more mobile on the various paths rather than a wagon.
