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.

First Time Beginner - Scottish Heavy Athletics (Wisconsin Highland Games)

This is me! A first timer at Scottish Heavy Athletics at the Wisconsin Highland Games! A lot of the competitors were really helpful and friendly and I managed to survive through it! lol! You definately need some weight on your bones otherwise a lot of the objects throw you around when you build up momentum. I was around 180lbs in the video, so I would recommend a good 220-240lbs!

Events from these games (See if you can beat me! lol)
Braemar Stone: 19'-10 (26lb weight)
Open Stone: 25'-7 (22lb weight)
Heavy Weight for Distance (WFD): 14'-6 (56lb weight)
Light Weight for Distance (WFD): 28'-3 (28lb weight)
Heavy Hammer: 44'-2 (22lb weight)
Light Hammer: 50'-2 (16lb weight)
Caber Toss: (20 feet long and weighing approximately 150 lbs) - Somebody broke it and I couldn't quality with it
Weight for Height (WFH): Couldn't do the opening height lol! (56lb weight)

The Wisconsin Highland Games attract professional and amateur. Highland athletes from around the world, from Olympians, national champions, and world record holders to local amateurs. The weekend is divided into Caledonian (Scottish) events on Saturday, and Hibernian (Irish) events on Sunday. This video is from the 2018 games.

The two versions of heavy athletics differ sometimes in the equipment used, sometimes in the rules, and sometimes both, for a particular event. The most popular event is Turning the Caber, in which athletes heave a log and attempt to rotate it so it lands at 12:00 in front of them. At the end of each day, athletes try a special challenge round turning the Badger Stick, a giant 141-pound, 16-foot 8-½-inch caber! Other events include throwing weights and stones for distance, weight toss for height (tossing over a suspended bar), the sheaf toss (tossing a sack of hay with a pitchfork), and the hammer throw.

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.
