Hundreds of people flocked to the region for the 67th annual Daylesford Highland Gathering on December 1. 

The event drew a reasonable crowd with 14 bands and two Scottish dance groups performing throughout the day.

Bands from Daylesford and Maryborough performed during the day, while others from as far afield as Warrnambool and Geelong travelled especially for the event. 

Bands from Ballarat Grammar and Federation University were highly regarded for their performances. 

This year’s event included new additions of mini highlands games for children and a massed band event at the conclusion of the day, which saw bagpipe and drum players perform a modern hit.
