LINCOLN, N.H. — The 40th annual N.H. Highland Games and Festival is filling Loon Mountain with traditional dance, music and athletic competitions.

More than 60 clans are wearing their tartans as the Scottish festival continues this weekend.

Scotland’s cultural heritage is captured in living history encampments and the so-called Scottish heavy athletics involving hurling objects.

Music competitions are being held for players of bagpipes, harp, fiddle and drums, and there are Highland dance competitions as well.

No Highlands festival would be complete without whiskey tastings and seminars on genealogy, Highlands dress and cooking and Celtic knot work.

“By any measure, the New Hampshire Highland Games & Festival is more than an annual event: It’s a tradition that has closed the gap between the Highlands to the White Mountains for 40 years,” said Jeffrey Rose, commissioner of the N.H. Department of Resources and Economic Development.
