Thunder in the GlensFriday 24th August to Monday 27th August, 2018
The first Dunedin Chapter Rally was held in 1997. Apart from one year, it has been held in Aviemore on the last weekend in August.
It is run by Dunedin HOG Chapter in partnership with Edinburgh Harley Davidson, Dunedin’s sponsoring dealership.
The rally attracts over 10,000 visitors to the Aviemore and Speyside area during the weekend. Year on year the Rally has grown from strength to strength and attracts headline acts as well as local entertainers.
We work with the local community to put on what has been described as the best Chapter run HOG Rally in Europe. To get an idea of the Rally click on our video and if you would like to pre-register, click on the ‘Buy Now’ button below.
