PICTURES: Annan celebrates historic march-riding

Section:  Annan and Eskdale, Dumfries and West, Lockerbie and Lochmaben, Moffat  | Tags: , , ,

A LARGE cavalcade followed Cornet Brook Johnston and his Lass Katy Nelson for the annual Riding of the Marches celebration in Annan today.

Crowds thronged the streets and surrounding countryside to view the inspection of the Royal Burgh’s historic landward and sea boundaries.

One of the highlights was a spectacular ride across the Solway Firth sands, which was later than previous years because of tide times.

Later in the day the programme included the Cornet’s Chase horse races, a colourful carnival parade, afternoon children’s entertainment, pipe band contest with the climax being massed pipe bands in the evening.
