In one of the many athletic contests at the recent 44th annual Dunedin Highland Games at Highlander Park, a participant prepares to heave a 17-pound stone for furthest distance. Other events included a caber toss, Scottish hammer throw, sheaf toss and a 100-pound stone challenge. Bagpiping, drumming and Highland dancing competitions and performances were also scheduled.
Demonstrations by sheep-herding dogs were a highlight at the recent Highland Games in Dunedin. Above, a border collie shows its skills in rounding up a group of sheep before splitting the herd in half and herding them all into a pen.
