Each year we invite a celebrity to be our chieftain for Games day.  The chieftain is the figurehead for the Games, helping us promote the event and receiving the salute of the pipe bands in the great march past, which is for many the climax of the day.  He or she also presents the prizes to all of our winning bands.

Each year, a very special Chieftain is invited to act as a figurehead for the Games. The Chieftain for the 171st Games in 2022 will be chosen from nominations received from the public. We are looking for a real local COVID hero. Watch for an announcement from our sponsor, Central FM.

In 2022, we were delighted to welcome a very special Chieftain to the 171st Bridge of Allan Highland Games – A local COVID hero!

As Chieftain to the Highland Games, the hero will be presenting prizes and receiving the salute of the pipe bands at the end of the day which for many is the climax of the Highland Games.
