Scottish music, Scottish dancing, bagpipe and athletic competitions, and lots of Scottish tartans from many Sottish clans. That's what you can expect each year when the Caledonian Society of Arizona puts on the annual Scottish Highland Games and Celtic Gathering. The event is often referred to by its short name -- the Scottish Highland Games.
