Right royal day for cattle enthusiasts
A royal visitor accompanied more than 150 Aberdeen-Angus enthusiasts from around the world at a special gathering on Speyside at the weekend.
The Duke of Rothesay was welcomed to Ballindalloch Castle by the Lord Lieutenant of Banffshire, Clare Russell. Her 35-cow Ballindalloch herd is the oldest Angus herd in continuous existence in the world. Mrs Russell's great-grandfather, Sir George Macpherson-Grant, was one of the founders of the breed.
The sun shone brightly on the enthusiastic crowd on Saturday and not even sporadic heavy rain showers could dampen the spirits of breeders celebrating the North-east Aberdeen-Angus Breeders' Club's 40th anniversary.
