Cowal Gathering

Client’s Requirement

Helping the organisers co-ordinate the participants, public, stewards, health and safety and security staff.

Background and Obstacles

One of the world’s biggest Highland Games – this event attracts over 3000 competitors and 30,000 spectators. With such a spread out and busy games site, efficient and clear radio communication was vital to ensure the smooth and safe running of the event.

Scotia Radio’s Solution

A full assessment of communication requirements was carried out.

40 handheld two-way radios were supplied along with multiple charging units, long-life batteries and a control base unit for monitoring the radio operators around the site.


The co-ordinators, stewards and security staff were able to communicate effectively throughout the site over the 3-day event. The organisers were very satisfied with the quality of equipment and the level of service provided by Scotia.

Feedback from Client

“Scotia Radio have successfully met Cowal Highland Gathering’s communication needs since 2014. From the outset their customer service and attention to detail has been first class.

The equipment provided is always in excellent condition, well maintained and ensures the various agencies involved in delivering a safe and successful event can communicate clearly and easily across the whole site.

I would recommend Scotia Radio without hesitation and look forward to continuing to work with Joe and his team in years to come.”
