Golspie's first-ever Backyard Ultra (BYU) was so successful that it is to take place again next year, organisers have announced.
The inaugural, last man standing race was held in the grounds of Dunrobin Castle on November 4 and 72 runners took part.
The winner was Aberdeenshire ultra-distance runner Mike Raffan who was the last man standing after 29 hours. He was presented with a bespoke watercolour of Dunrobin Castle.
The Golspie BYU was organised by local residents Ian and Nikki Harrison.
Mrs Harrison said earlier this week: "We have been given the go-ahead for Golspie Backyard Ultra next year and will hold it on Saturday, November 2, with the same set-up for the Friday as this year."

The race was held this year in aid of Highland and Islands Blood Bikes and that will also be the case in 2024.
