STONELAND: An Original Film by Rogue / 4K

There are few places on earth as intimately tied to historic feats of strength as the Highlands of Scotland. There are countless stories of local warriors and clansmen training for battle. Of castle bodyguards proving their strength by carrying heavy weights over long distances. An often cited tale dates back to the 11th century when King Malcolm III summoned his countrymen to compete in a foot race that would determine who would become his royal messenger.

All over Scotland are remnants of these ancient tests of strength — lifting stones, formed over the centuries by wind and river erosion, each with its own history and local lore. A relative few still know about and seek out these ancient stones. This is their story.

Win for Lukasz Wenta in Caber Toss Heavy event during 2019 Stonehaven Highland Games in Scotland

Film showing the competitors in the Cabre Toss traditional heavy event during the 2019 Stonehaven Highland Games in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. This was a win for Lukasz Wenta but included competitors Vlad Tulacek from the Czech Republic, Kyle Robert Randalls and visiting competitors Kevin Becker from Texas and Luke Crawley from Wisconsin in the USA.

The caber toss is a traditional Scottish athletic event in which competitors toss a large tapered wooden pole called a caber. The caber is usually made from a Larch tree and is typically 19 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 12.5 stone, but there are bigger and longer versions at some games, including Aboyne and the Braemar Gathering.
