And despite a rumble of thunder and a rainy spell, the organisers say it was another successful year.

Emma Gillanders, Treasurer of Airth Highland Games said: “It was a great day, and we were thrilled with how everything went to plan.”

Around 3200 attended the event to watch Highland dancing, tossing the caber, hammer throwing, cycling and the famous Smiddy Stane carry.
