A popular agricultural event returns to the county on Saturday (October 9) after missing a year due to the pandemic.

Caithness Vintage Tractor and Machinery Club is holding its annual vintage ploughing match at Achunabust Farm by Reay from 9.15am until around 2.30pm.

There will be a honesty box at the entrance for the entry fee of £3. Sandy Mackay, ploughing match convenor, said: "This is the first since Covid and we hope for a good turnout. There will be 20 competitors from as far afield as Inverness and judges coming from Carnoustie."

The event is held at the kind permission of Robert Sutherland. Refreshments will be available and there will be a raffle. "We look forward to seeing everyone there this Saturday whether you're ploughing or spectating," added Sandy.
