THIS year’s Drymen Show was definitely not a wash out - despite the wet and windy weather on the day.

Exhibitors braved the elements and travelled from all over Scotland to show off their cattle, sheep, horses, rabbits, poultry and vintage machinery on Saturday to be in with a chance of picking up a red rosette.

Hundreds of visitors passed through the gates and families were not disappointed as there was loads to see and do at this event - one of Scotland’s biggest annual one day agricultural shows.

Most of the attractions went ahead as planned in the Drymen showfield, although the Scottish Women’s Rural Institute competition had to be moved to Drymen Village Hall and the alpaca show took place at Ballochruin Farm in Balfron.

The crowds were treated to some delicious food, kids were kept happy with a variety of fun activities and there was even a chance to do a bit of shopping with stalls selling all sorts of goodies.

The exciting main ring programme included ‘Riders of the Storm’ a unique equestrian stunt team based in highland Perthshire who entertained the crowds with their astonishing tricks, flips and stunts.

The results will be published in a subsequent issue of the paper. and on our website www.milngavieherald.co.uk
