Storm Babet failed to put a damper on Sutherland Agricultural Society’s annual show trophy dance last Saturday, which went ahead as planned with only a few people dropping out due to the weather.

The event took place at Clashmore Hall, and saw winners at the 2023 Sutherland Show, held in July, presented with their awards.

An impressive array of trophies set out at Clashmore Hall ready for the prize-giving.

Society director Ian Muir welcomed those present including prize winners, committee members and show supporters.

He thanked all the exhibitors for their hard work and preparations which he said had produced a fine display of entries in all sections from livestock to horses, food and craft.

The awards were presented by Iain Mackenzie from agricultural merchants W & A Geddes of Brora, a business which has been a long-time supporter of the show.

The meal afterwards was provided by the Coach House, Dornoch, and music by Ceilidh Fusion.

A spokesperson for the society said: "The trophy presentation marks the end of our 2023 events. However, plans are well under way for the 2024 show which will be held at Dornoch Links on Saturday, July 20."

More information is available on the show's Facebook page.
