There was a bumper attendance at Cortachy Highland Games and Flower Show at the weekend due to the favourable weather.
Around 1,500 people attended the games, which have taken place within the grounds of Cortachy Castle, near Kirriemuir, since the 1880s.
Among the attractions on offer were traditional heavy events, tug o’ war, Highland dancing and a piping competition.
The games also catered for families with children’s races, fancy dress competitions, flower and handcrafts in the industrial shows and competitions, a dog show and the traditional dog race.
Secretary Jane McEwen said: “It’s been a brilliant afternoon helped by the sunny weather.
“Attendance in recent years has been around 800 to 900 so we are absolutely delighted to have more than 1,500 people here today.
“We’ve had lots of people coming from abroad again as far afield as Australia and New Zealand. It’s a good chance for them to see a traditional Highland games.”
There was a grand auction of flowers, vegetables, fruit, baking and jams towards the end of the afternoon to raise funds for the Cortachy Highland Games and Horticultural Society.
The afternoon concluded with the traditional duck race down the South Esk.
