Thousands of people came from far and wide to attend the 165th New Deer Show at the weekend.

Helping to keep the mud at bay, the weather held out for most of the two-day agricultural event.

The crowds of people who attended were treated to a packed programme of events, including animal judging, scores of stalls, the Industrial tent and the Food and Craft Fayre.

Younger visitors weren’t left out either, with lots of activities on offer.

The centrepiece of the programme was the arrival of Jason Smyth, who wowed the audience on both days of the show with quad bike stunts as part of his Adrenaline Tour.

First Minister Alex Salmond was present at the show on Saturday, along with scores of local councillors and Eilidh Whiteford MP - who held a constituency surgery on the first day of the weekend event.
