The largest agricultural event is peeking eminently around the corner and at BBC Scotland's online department we are digging out all of the essentials sun cream, wellie boots, waterproofs and a camera!

So as we prepare to head to our nation's capital to cover the 2010 Royal Highland Show, we thought it might be a good time to spill the beans on BBC Scotland's coverage of this year's show.

BBC Scotland at the Royal Highland Show will have a host of videos and information, and will feature archive footage from previous shows and the latest from Edinburgh's Ingliston showground throughout the weekend.

You can get an instant snapshot of the show from our photographs which will build over the four-day event, and you can also add your own pictures to the collection by uploading to our flickr group.

BBC Scotland will have a large presence at the event with BBC Radio Scotland's Out of Doors and television series Landward recording from the show and rounding up what's on offer.

BBC Radio Scotland will broadcast a variety of programmes throughout the weekend and BBC Scotland's marquee will also be home to a number of other activities, from online to sports commentary to Raven challenges.

The Royal Highland Show mark a milestone as they celebrate 50 years at Ingliston, however the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS), have been hosting the show for 170 years.

Show manager David Dunsmuir ensures there is a correct combination of agriculture and entertainment and explains by staying true the society's values the continued success of the show is maintained:

The show takes place from 24 - 27 June offering a multitude of events and exhibitions from the farming and rural sector. Visit the official Royal Highland Show website for full details of the activities throughout the event.
