A traditional backsword (Single-Stick) tournament will be held at the Abernethy Highland Games, 2004.
This will be it's second year, having taken place at Milingavie Highland Games in 2003, after an absence of over 80 years in Scottish events
The Abernethy Games is one of the longest established Highland Games
in Scotland, and this year has kindly agreed to hold an Open
tournament which will be held on Saturday 14th of August and is open to all. This is an important event in the ongoing revival of traditional
backswording in Highland Games events today, heralding the return of
the sword to its rightful place in Scottish cultural heritage.
