A man from Beauly feels 'blessed with luck' after he won a life-changing sum of money in a giveaway.

Russell Duncan, from Beauly, won £100,000 after taking part in an online competition run by The Giveaway Guys.

Russell won an Aston Martin Vantage but instead opted for the whopping six-figure sum alternative.

The lucky Scot's name was selected at random and announced via The Giveaway Guys livestream online.

After the grand announcement, Russell said: "It really is life changing."

However, this is not the first time Russell's been lucky enough to win an incredible prize in a giveaway as he said: "I'm actually quite lucky at winning things.

"I've won two motorbikes before and my dad was also very lucky, so I guess I've been blessed with luck."

Russell's wife Shirley said: "This is just amazing, I honestly can't believe it. I'm going to open a bottle of fizz!"

The Giveaway Guys congratulated the lucky man after they announced that it was the biggest giveaway they had ever done.

The Giveaway Guys are a group that share a passion for cars and anything engine related.

The initiative started when the founders were tired of entering 'Spot the Ball' type competitions for their dream cars or holidays, but never winning due to the huge number of people allowed to enter, so instead they grouped together to form The Giveaway Guys.

After starting in 2020, the company has grown a huge audience of over 100,000 followers watching their footage of prize draws on Facebook and Instagram.
