The Scotch Fair Highland Games that has traditionally taken place in Scotland County, is changing to Scotland County Highland Games. This year the games are scheduled to take place October 2-4, 2009 at the John Blue House in Laurinburg, NC. It's a beautiful historic home that has been restored and is surrounded by a rich history of Scottish descendants and other antebellum homes, and a pre-Civil War cotton gin (believed to be the oldest in existence). The John Blue House is known as the "Riverboat on Land".
