The last and quite possibly the largest show of the calendar took place on Saturday – the Dalmally Agricultural Show.

The massive field was packed with people and even the sun managed to make an appearance – from time to time.

Whether it was the judging of the animals, the pipe band playing, shinty games, bird shows, wood working, and the famous terrier race.

The children certainly had plenty to choose from as bouncy castles and fun-fair styled stalls surrounded the field.

Organisers of the show said: ‘A huge thank you to all our volunteers, competitors, sponsors, stall-holders, and to everyone who came along to support this year’s Dalmally Show – we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.’

The overall cattle champion belonged to Douglas MacDonald of Tyree, Benderloch. He said: ‘It’s not easy doing it, so it is very nice and it’s good to keep the young ones interested.’

The overall winner in the native or continental breed of sheep category was won by a cheviot tup owned by Iain MacKay from Luss.

And the champion blackface sheep was won by Sandy Patterson from Auchloy, near Crieff.

Another star of the show belonged to Iain McKay from Appin. His one-year-old terrier was crowned Best in Show.

When asked how he felt afterwards, he said: ‘Brilliant. The wife will be happy.’

A club you might not expect to see at an agricultural show, The Oban and District Classic Car Club, had a great time.

The club had 14 cars on show. ‘It’s been a good response’ said Kevin Devine chairman of the club. ‘A lot of people are interested and we managed to recruit two new members.’
