Tartan Army Set For Aviemore Return

It has unfortunately become an unwanted bi-annual event for the Tartan Army... Somewhere to make the most of failing to qualify for major championships!
The event in Aviemore has now been held every two years for the past three major football championships and is starting to look like a fixed event on the calendar now that the National football team can't seem to qualify for a major tournament.
Next year's Tartan Army Gathering will be the third one with the previous two attracting around 2500 visitors to each event.

2010 however is going to be bigger and better than ever before!

The dates for the 2010 Tartan Army Gathering are from the 2nd to the 9th of July and previously there have been a few bands, singers and a kilted football tournament, mini highland games and a Tartan Army march.

Next year's event already consists of 15 musical acts, big screens for World Cup matches, a massive play area for children, helicopter tours over the Cairngorms, football tournaments, battle re-enactments, Highland Games, Tartan Army march, Big Rory & Ochie, special guests and many more activities going on around Aviemore while The Tartan Army are in town.
The organisers have also chartered a train departing from Dumfries en route to Aviemore picking fans up at selected stations on the way and while the train is in Aviemore there will be a chance to book a day trip to the Kyle of Lochalsh through some of the most beautiful scenery our country has to offer.
There is already interest from both the Tartan Army non qualifiers and indeed other nations who will also be sitting on the sidelines this year!
