A long-standing Highland charity sheepdog trial attracted dozens of competitors from across the country at the weekend – raising hundreds of pounds in aid of a local animal shelter.
The event has been run by Hugh and Marlene Munro in Inverness for the last 30 years, with a different charity being selected each year.
Around 35 farmers and crofters took part with a total of 52 sheepdogs at the Scottish Government-run bull stud farm at Knocknagael in the city.
Mr Munro said: “It was a great turnout and a brilliant event despite the weather.
“I have been running this for the last 30 years for a different charity each year, so we were delighted with those who made it from across Scotland.”
This year the event raised around £840 for Munlochy Animal Aid based in the Black Isle.
Iona Nicol, who runs the shelter, said: “Wow, that is a fantastic given the weather at the weekend.
“I am so delighted so many people turned out to take part and also watch. It is great they had such a successful day. We are very grateful for the donations.”
Munlochy Animal Aid was set up to initially provide shelter and care to abandoned, abused and neglected animals and subsequently, wherever possible, to find suitable, permanent homes for them.
The charity operates solely on donations from the public
The winning team on the day was Peter Martin with his dog Jill, from Perthshire, who scored 94 points out of 100. He also had success with his dog Daisy, coming in fourth with 84 points.
In second was Stuart Davidson from Dunoon with his dog Queen.
Third was John McKillop from Fort Augustus with Ben.
In fifth was Euan McKinnon with Midge, and sixth place was Joe McKenzie with Tweedie.
