MOY Country Fair returned today for the first time since 2019 with a new name and focus on being family friendly.

The event drew large crowds who enjoyed the first day of entertainment.

Highlights in the main ring included a farrier demonstration by Robin Pape, a falconry display, the Dalriada Ponies and a demonstration by the Scottish Moorland Association who showed a year in the life on a moor.

Elsewhere, clay pigeon shooting and gun dog handling were ongoing with novices and elites alike trying their luck, as well as fly fishing on the loch.

There was plenty of food and drink as well as local stalls showcasing a variety of items from cheese, gin and dog coats.

There were two cooking demonstrations by chef Christopher Trotter who showed a beautiful dish with scallops and another with pork fillet.

For the first time the RNLI headed to the event and did an important water safety demonstration so people can be safe when canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding.

Chairman of the organising committee, James Campbell, said: "It;s just been great to get back and I think that people are delighted that we are running it here. We certainly missed it and it's been tough to get going again but we're delighted to be here."
