Curious About The Origins Of The Scottish Highland Games?

It is widely believed that King Malcolm III of Scotland, in the 11th century, summoned contestants to a foot race to the summit of Craig Choinnich (overlooking Braemar). King Malcolm created this foot race in order to find the fastest runner in the land to be his royal messenger. Some have seen in this event the origin of today’s modern Highland games.
