Independent or not, Scots will continue to gather in the highlands for feats of strength and other forms of absurdity.

Today’s fiercely fought vote on Independence isn’t the only competition in Scotland this season. One of our favorite street photographers, Glasgow-based Dougie Wallace, spent late summer stalking three of the great Highland Games in Scotland: the Rothesay games on the Isle of Bute (with both shinty and junior shinty), the Dunoon Cowal Highland Gathering at the end of August (this year featuring the Clan Mountain Bike Stunt team), plus the Pitlochry Highland Games (with Perthshire Tug o’War, triple jump, Junior Piping League) on September 12.
