It was full steam ahead at Fort William Railway Bowling Club last weekend as competitions took place on the Inverlochy green on Saturday and Sunday.
Last Saturday saw the return of the annual Manson and MacBeath Funeral Directors competition.
Twenty one bowlers entered into the balloted triples draw and all played six games of six ends with the top two playing a final at 5pm.
Overall winners were Robert Hunter, Alan Lawrie and Gus Fraser who were presented with their award by Jamie Manson.
Jamie said: ‘At last we are able to start the competition again. It was a great day and I would like to thank all the players who took part and supporters who came along to watch.’
On Sunday, the busy bowlers were out again, this time competing in the Willie Duff Triples.
Kevin Douglas made the presentation to the winning team of Colin MacDonald. George MacKay and Alan Lawrie who won a closely-fought final.
