Campbeltown Young Farmers’ first tractor run has reaped an impressive reward for charity.

Almost 30 tractors and lorries set off from Machrihanish Airbase Community Company (MACC) Business Park on a Sunday morning in July.

They travelled via the Moss Road to Campbeltown 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.

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

A line-up of tractors and lorries met at MACC Business Park ahead of the tractor run.

There was also a raffle which, in addition to the £10 entry fee and donations, helped raise £1,227.83 for Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.

‘We would like to thank everyone who gave us a donation for our tractor run,’ said a club spokesperson.

‘We hope all the spectators along the way and everyone who took part enjoyed their day.’
