Hill races, cookery demonstrations, a pets parade, kids races, a vintage pram display, Highland Dancing, a truck and vintage show, and music and entertainment are also on offer.Back after a few years is a fur and feather competition, while a new feature will be a Bucking Bronco challenge.

On Monday, spectators can watch on as the Grand Parade of Livestock takes place, with the judging of the finals of the prestigious Scottish Beef Cattle Championship a main highlight. There will also be the presentation of the Crop Competition, as well as Pony Club Games, a horticultural marquee and more.

Over both days, there will be trade stands, a funfair, the flower show, a craft fair, demonstrations, chainsaw carving, green stick working, games and a variety of food and drink on offer.

A full list of all events and timings is available on the show website – www.keithshow.org.uk – as well as the latest show news.
