Hundreds of people flocked to the Buchan coast for one of Scotland’s longest-running galas.
The curtain came down on the weekend-long event at St Combs last night with Songs of Praise at the village church.
The gala was launched on Friday night with homemade karts racing through the village’s streets, exciting spectators with thrills and spills.
On Saturday, youngsters enjoyed an assortment of fun and games with a fancy dress competition.
Other activities for visitors also included a baking competition, a treasure hunt for children, and large inflatables.
The Fraserburgh British Legion Pipe Band led the gala parade through the village to the playing fields which were the venue for most of weekend’s activities.
And revellers kept the party going into the wee hours, with the annual gala dance.
Glasgow band Splendid Gentleman provided a mix of new and old hits for locals to dance the night away to.
Local councillor Fiona McRae said it was good to see the gala entertaining families once more.
“It’s great to see it on the go,” she added.
“The community is very much together, and the new community hall is being used to its fullest. There is good community spirit in the village again.
“I was there last week with landscape officers to see what needed to be done and there was a good feeling. There’s still a strong feeling of togetherness in a village that does things for itself.”
The community was left devastated six years ago when the village hall was burned to the ground.
A massive fundraising drive followed, and the hall was rebuilt and reopened last year.
The new building, heated by ground-sourced pumps and powered by solar panels, also qualified for a grant from the Green Energy Trust, a charity which helps community-based renewable energy projects.
The gala itself was originally launched in the 1970s as a football festival.
