If its KILCONQUHAR , Leven in Fife you are coming to then Nigel google tells me Inverness is 142 miles away ;) ;)

I'll try and get some photos for you of the Daviot show which I'm hoping will be a good event as it is a working day. If it really good I'll even contemplate hauling my working cub up there for a play next year ;D ;D

I don't know if you will be tractor spotting around the Leven area but there is an excellent private museum belonging to David and Joyce Symington of Strathkinness near St Andrews. They were featured in Tractor and machinery magazine ( I think it was that magazine ) last month or maybe it was this month.

Well yesterday morning I set off at 6 am to go to the event close to Inverness. I choose to take the scenic route the Coxk Bridge to Tomintoul route and over past the Lecht Ski resort. No wonder that road get closed with snow with those gradients. I certainly would not liked to have a Farmall behind me ;) ;)

It was a lovely run up apart from close encounters with three sets of roe deer, a bunch of ducks and hundreds of sheep raoming over the roads ;D ;D. Anyway I arrived at 8.30 and was the first spectator and got in FOC since there was no one on the gates.... a real Aberdonian me ;D ;D

Anyway on with the show

Some trade stands

Groundwaters : Manitous


Highland Tractors : An MF dealer with a rather "orangy" looking MF 6480


A collection of cast iron seats

Great pictures Bill, love the County's :) thanks for taking the time to take them and post them on here :)

Yes the County's were an imprsssive site to see  Mark ;) ;). They will be holding a woking day event approx 12 miles from me shortly at BA Stores the place we have our local working day in May every year. In the past they have made it a members only working day and not a public event but I will see if I can worm my way into it if I'm free that day or weekend
