The Killin Agricultural Show was held on Saturday August 18.

The sheep judging began at 9am with the main events starting at 11am.

A parade marched from the Falls of Dochart at midday through the village to Breadalbane Park lead by Comrie Pipe Band, with the vintage tractors bringing up the rear.

In the main arena, Andy Anderson and Robert Lafferty gave a display of crazy bike stunts, with Andy showing off his extreme skills by riding his trials bike with the front forks removed. He is one of one three people who can perform this trick. The display was finished off by Robert doing somersaults on his BMX.

As well as the animal judging, there were many events taking place in the arena, including a dog show, sack racing, children’s races, terrier racing, bonny babies, a sheep shearing display and more.

Fabulous young band Headland played three sessions throughout the afternoon to entertain the crowds.

The vintage tractors paraded around the ring before all the prizes were presented for the various categories.
