Ben Rinnes 5 Tops Hill Race

All runners must pay the Dufftown Games entry fee and submit ticket upon registration.


Highland Games Race at Dufftown - the whisky capital of Scotland. Fantastic atmosphere with piped bands and caber tossing. The route is an out and back to Ben Rinnes, the dominant hill of the region, passing the rounded summits of Little Conval and Meikle Conval on the outward and return journeys.  Good terrain and easy route-finding most of the way.
