The weather on the 23rd June was brilliant - sunny and warm which made for a great day. The standard of entries in the Parade was very high with some very funny and innovative ideas. Congratulations to the organising committee, Highland Chieftains Andy and Rab Irving, Tartan Queen Jennifer, her court (Millie, Ellis, Johnny and Liam) and all the participants for a splendid Parade and Crowning.
