Strongman siblings Tom and Luke Stoltman have been presented with a quaich by Highland Council for putting their hometown Invergordon “on the map”.
Tom Stoltman, 27, won the 2021 World’s Strongest Man Competition in Sacramento, USA, in June, becoming the first competitor from Scotland to win the competition.
Older brother Luke, 36, has also been recognised for his successes, having been crowned Scotland’s Strongest Man five times.
The Stoltman siblings are the only brothers to reach the finals of the World’s Strongest Man contest.
