It was Dufftown's big day yesterday as the sun shone down on the annual Highland Games. Held on the last Saturday of July every year since 1892 the games attract visitors from far and wide. With the influx of visitors the towns population easily doubles and yesterdays fine summer weather brought out a bumper attendance.

All the usual attractions were there, large men tossing cabers, small girls dancing, tug of wars teams, bagpipe bands, Ali Buchan's Thames Trader Truck  And of course as one of the games main sponsors the Glenfiddich star shade was there staffed by Glenfiddich's answer to Charlie's Angels.

With no repeat of the Friday's massive electrical storm, the weather stayed fine all day and well into the evening providing the perfect opportunity for a games night FIRE CLUB. Which due to a number of artist's friends arriving over past few days also saw a bumper turn out.
