A powerful sookit gimmer from Messrs McArthur, Arnicle Farm, Glenbarr, took top honours at the Cowal Blackface Sheep Breeders annual show.
An added attraction was a display of vintage tractors and cars, courtesy of Cowal Vintage Transport Club.
Two Kintyre enthusiasts visted with their gleaming 1950s tractors. John Gourlay from Clachan brought along his spotless 1957 Ferguson 35, which he – just the tractor’s second owner – has looked after for 30 years.
The trophy for best in show, presented by Cowal Vintage Transport Club, went to Campbeltown enthusiast Jackie Morrison for his McCormick International B250, dating from 1957.
