Forty-one tractors and four lorries took part in Campbeltown Young Farmers Road Run on Sunday raising an amazing £1,600 for Macmillan Cancer Support en route.

Starting off at the MACC officers mess car park at 10.30am, the impressive convoy made a right turn to head along the Moss road before turning left towards Stewarton.

It was then on to Southend and through the village before making its way back towards Stewarton and on  into the town.

The route continued through Meadowburn, Meadows Avenue, Castlehill, down Main Street, up Longrow, down to Aqualibrium Avenue and head towards the ferry terminal.

There the Young Farmers sold raffle tickets and received a brilliant turn out of spectators who were very generous with donations.

On leaving the ferry terminal the convoy made its way back to MACC via the West Road.

‘We are very grateful for all donations for such a great cause and hope to see everyone out again next year,’ said organisers.
