Almost 30 tractors and lorries hit the road for Campbeltown Young Farmers’ first tractor run, raising almost £1,000 for charity.

The vehicles set off from the Officers Mess car park at the Machrihanish Airbase Community Company (MACC) Business Park last Sunday morning.

They travelled via the Moss Road to Campbeltown where they drove down Main Street and up Longrow before making their way east to Peninver.

They then travelled back to town, to the ferry terminal, where they stopped for a break to allow spectators to view the vehicles.

They continued on to Stewarton and Machrihanish before returning to MACC Business Park via the runway for soft drink refreshments and fresh baking.

There was also a raffle which, in addition to the £10 entry fee and donations, helped raise more than £900 for Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.

The route included a trip out to Peninver.
