An extreme mountain bike show, pet dog show and Highland Strongman display were just some of the attractions on offer for bank holiday revellers who attended the 16th Highland Fling Country Fair.

Animal lovers were in their element with the display of new-born spring animals and the farm’s usual residents – goats, pigs, donkeys, llamas and chickens – ready for some visitor attention.

Those looking for more of a thrill were invited to check out British Cycling’s Go Ride skills sessions or join the fun fair, which offered rides for all ages.
