    "Delightful Gem Describing Highland Games"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is aptly titled, as it's a delightful little gem describing the various games and activities experienced at Highland Games around the globe. Daniel Penz's narration was excellent. His soft Scottish brogue was perfect for this audio and really set the stage for imagining that you are in northern Scotland. I definitely recommend this audiobook to anyone who enjoys attending Celtic and Irish Festivals!
