This year the Royal Highland show hosted a record number of visitors as 188,449 people attended the event; an increase of 10,000 people on last year’s show.
The main focus of the show was, as always, about 7000 of the UK’s finest livestock with over £225,000 prize money and 280 trophies worth about £2,000,000 awarded.
Scotland’s Larder Live, the show’s new food offering, exhibited 120 of the finest food and drink samples from the UK, highlighting the main consumer message of ’farming equals food’ whilst offering a lively, stimulating and interactive area full of sights, smells and samples.
Over 30,000 children attend the show free of charge over the four days to learn about food and farming at the Royal Highland Trust’s Education Centre.
The show’s chief executive, Stephen Hutt said: "Once again the Royal Highland Show has lived up to its reputation as one of Scotland’s most enduing and iconic events.
"Along with being the place to experience the best of farming, food and rural life, it is also still very much the place to ’do business’, with trade space selling out in record time this year."
