The event was spread over a large area, and it was quite a walk from one end to the other. There were several trailers fitted out to carry spectators from one area to the next - and very welcome they were too.
Scottish Ploughing Championships 2015 :: NJ2468

This event took place at Wester Greens and Oakenhead near Lossiemouth on 24 and 25 October 2015. The morning was wet, and by the time it had cleared up and I had found somewhere to park, most of the competitors had completed their tasks, so I was too late for any action shots. The event requires an extensive area of flat ground so that all competitors get as nearly as possible an identical patch of ground to plough, and once he or she has completed the task he or she parks the tractor at the end of the ploughed patch ready for the judges' visit.
