The Duke of Edinburgh has arrived at the Braemar Gathering with other members of the Royal Family including the Queen.
The Duke, who is 91, recently spent several days in hospital in Aberdeen with a bladder infection but appeared in fine health as made his first public appearance since being discharged.
The BBC's Laura Bicker was watching the day's events and also spoke to some of the staff from the Queen's Balmoral Estate - who had just taken part in the tug of war.
