A large number of Islanders travelled to Edinburgh to attend this year’s Royal Highland Show, both as exhibitors and spectators.
Beating some very stiff competition two locals were awarded prizes in the classes they entered.
Iain MacInnes, with British Blue Heifer Ruaig Dotti Et, who was placed 2nd in her class to the eventual reserve female leader. Iain was also 3rd in class to the overall reserve champion with British Blue Bluebell Conor.
A fantastic win for 15 year old Alasdair with his homebred shearling tup. Placed 1st out of a class of 40, Nutcracker went on to win Male Champion then won the Supreme Beltex Champion from 245 entrants, the largest sheep section at the Show.
