Fergus and Elora

Last year I visited Fergus and Elora for the first time and I found them to be lovely small towns with quaint stores and tea shops where we stopped after shopping.
While you are in Elora, take a walk back and see the Elora Gorge which is interesting.
Fergus has Highland Games each year, and this year they are being held the weekend of August 8 - 10th 2014.
For anyone who is Scottish or likes things Scottish, this is a wonderful event as there are Highland Dancing competitions, Pipe Bands, Sheep Shearing demonstrations, the Caber toss, and much more including a Saturday Night Ceilidh.
