Three candidates will contest the election for the role as president of NFU Scotland.

Current president Allan Bowie from St Andrews faces competition for the post from current vice presidents Rob Livesey from Melrose and Andrew McCornick of Lochfoot near Dumfries.

A series of hustings meetings will be held across the country.

The elections will take place following the union's annual general meeting in Glasgow in February.

Three candidates are also vying for two vice president positions.

They are Tom French of Crawfordjohn, Martin Kennedy from Aberfeldy and Gary Mitchell from Stranraer.
