For sure, the Highland Games are becoming quite popular in France and you want to know more and more about our competitions.

That's why it is a real pleasure for the blogger to say "Merci" for your visits on the blog and to celebrate our 200.000th visitor with this cartoon by our Bressuire drawer Kayo

International clicks

I don't know where the 200.000th comes from but we are proud to see we have so many clicks from all over the world.

About one third come from abroad with roughly 15% from the US and 10% from Great Britain with many others from Germany, Holland or countries from Eastern Europe.

Thanks again!
