This year’s Galloway Country Fair at Drumlanrig Castle Estate was a huge success.

Josh and Max Hiddleston, aged seven and four and from Kirkconnel, waved the flag on the start of the fair, signalling the opening of the gates.

Headliner Paul Hannam wowed the crowds with jaw dropping stunts on his quad bike, as did fellow stunt rider Radford Chugg. Crowds were also treated to acts including horse whisperer Grant Bazin, Lee Hartis with his Galloway gun dogs, Blackstone Clydesdales’ Hanna Shankland, and Roger Smith of Borderlines.

The annual two-day festival, which this year took place over the weekend of August 17 and 18, is a major highlight in the rural events calendar. It brings together food and drink, country sports, entertainment, children’s activities and more.
