Trainspotting star Ewan McGregor has been thanked for giving a shout-out to the Crieff Highland Gathering on prime-time telly.
The Perthshire-born actor was asked about the historic games during a guest-spot on the BBC’s One Show on Wednesday night.
Ewan, 45, corrected hosts who asked if the event was a gathering of the McGregor clan.
He said the event, which takes place in Crieff on August 21, was a “a wonderful day out” and “brings the community together”.

A spokesman for the games tweeted a clip of the interview and wrote: “Thanks @mcgregor_ewan for the plug on The One Show last night”.
Ewan, who has been in Scotland filming the highly anticipated sequel to Trainspotting, was chieftain of the games in 2013.
