Hundreds of classic car fans visited an Aberdeenshire castle yesterday to help raise cash for sick children across the north-east.
The Grampian branch of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club celebrated its 20th annual gathering at Drum Castle in Deeside.
More than 800 visitors attended the event, which featured Jaguars and Daimlers from as far back as the 1950s, as well as more modern vehicles.
More than 80 car owners brought along their pride and joy to park up on the scenic south lawn of the historic castle.
Some of the big cats basking in the sunshine this year included a 1955 Jaguar XK, a 1966 E-Type, and a 1954 C-Type.
Their owners spent the afternoon showing off their beloved motors to fellow enthusiasts and curious members of the public out enjoying a stroll around the castle gardens in the warm weather.
As well as plenty of attractions for petrolheads, the sun-baked gathering also had something to offer for all the family – with pipe music, competitions, stalls and more.
And one lucky raffle winner even secured the chance to drive either an F-Type of F-Pace Jaguar for a weekend.
Last year, the organisers of the gathering raised almost £3,000 for the charity Mental Health Aberdeen, and this year they hope to drive up even more cash for The Archie Foundation, the official charity of the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital.
Roger Sambrook, the organiser of the annual gathering, said: “We had a really fantastic turnout of cars and members of the public this year, thanks no doubt in part to the wonderful weather.
“There were a lot of families enjoying themselves, and in addition to the cars we had strawberry and cream stalls, cakes, a bottle stall, and appearances by this year’s charity The Archie Foundation.
“It will be some time until we get our final total, but we’re hoping to raise as much as we can for the charity because they really do make a big difference.
“We’d also like to thank Peter Vardy who have given us a lot of support again, including their raffle prize of a weekend use of a Jaguar.”
