Black Isle Show opens at Muir of Ord

The biggest agricultural event in the Highlands has opened with a horse show.

The 176th annual Black Isle Show at Muir of Ord, near Inverness, will also feature 300 exhibitors, a food and craft festival and flower show.

The event continues on Thursday when it will host inaugural Scottish Limousin Grand Prix.

About 80 Limousin cattle from across Scotland and the north of England have been entered for the competition.

Last year, 30,000 people attended the two-day agricultural show, which is the second biggest event of its kind in Scotland.
