DESPITE the remnants of Hurricane Bertha threatening to put a stop to proceedings, as it did to Keith Show, Grantown Show went ahead on a surprisingly dry show field which boasted boosted entries in the cattle and sheep lines.
Despite somewhat blustery, chilly weather, Peeblesshire Agricultural Society's second year at Nether Horsbrugh, proved a huge success with increased spectators and entries across the board complete with another overall champion of champions accolade for Gordon and David Gray's Ettrick Texel flock from Sunnycroft, Lindean.
Young Stephanie Dick, Mains of Throsk, Stirling, dominated the proceedings at a friendly, well-organised Kinross Show, winning not only three of the individual beef sections, but also the supreme cattle honours.
OVERNIGHT RAIN meant that it was treacherous underfoot but blue skies above for most of the show day brought out the crowds to Mid Argyll Show, held as usual at Kilmory, just on the outskirts of Lochgilphead.
North Country Cheviot sheep certainly made their presence at the Black Isle Show, winning not only the coveted inter-breed sheep trophy but also the best in Ross-shire honours - with two different sheep.
