Sharyn McCrumb, who used to write murder mysteries but these days wants to be known as a "Southern writer," wrote a murder mystery set at a Highland games, called "Highland Laddie Gone." It was pretty decent light reading, and it helped that I was familiar with the setting. :)
"Amateur sleuth Jim Qwilleran races home when his friend Polly is alarmed by a stranger. Polly suggests they take a trip to Scotland, including Jim's cats, Koko and Yum Yum. Then a tarot card reading predicts danger for a mature women. Will the Scots tour turn out to be fatal for Polly?"
Another of Braun's "Cat Who" mysteries is set around a Highland games, but I can't recall the title right now. I remember reading it and being somewhat grumpy that she got the details of one of the Highland dances wrong. :)
