Highland Games Caber


The term ‘Caber’ derives from the Gaelic word cabar. It is thought the caber toss originated in the Scottish highlands, where large tree beams were tossed across ice-cold streams to provide a temporary bridge. The sport of caber tossing evolved to be a favourite event of the Highland Games held across Scotland. In Scotland, the caber was typically made Larch tree or other softwood trunks.  It measures an impressive  16-20 feet and can weigh a staggering  90-150 pounds. From times gone by, to the present day, the caber toss is a test of strength, endurance, skill, ingenuity, determination and friendly gamesmanship.
