Thousands of people from all corners of the UK will attend the biggest event on Scotland’s farming calendar in the coming days.
The final preparations for the Royal Highland Show in Ingliston were being put in place on Wednesday as farmers from across the country began descending on the showground with some 2,500 livestock animals in tow.
We took a tour of the showground to see how things are shaping up.
Cattle, sheep and horses were among the animals being groomed in advance of Thursday’s show opening.
And organisers said they are “absolutely prepared” for any adverse weather, with a Met Office yellow warning of thunderstorms and heavy rain forecast overnight into Thursday.
Chief executive of the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland, Alan Laidlaw, said: “It is always an exciting time of year and there is a real buzz around the showground at the moment.
“We’ve got the Aberdeen Angus World Forum here and that has brought visitors in from international climes. The showground’s full again.”
