The downpours kept a lot of people away on the first day of the show at Drumlanrig Castle, however better weather brought out the crowds on Sunday.
And they enjoyed a celebration of countryside pursuits, with demonstrations and the chance to have a go at fly fishing, clay pigeon shooting, airguns, off road driving and a gundog scurry.
There was plenty to keep youngsters occupied in the children’s corner featuring bouncy castles, assault courses, face painting, mini quad bikes, a climbing wall and laser tag.
Artists and crafters demonstrated their skills on stalls and in the craft tent.
The show was a slice of food heaven too with a heaving food hall featuring an array of local and Scottish producers. Samples of cheese, sweets, chutneys and real ales proved popular with visitors.
And the Buccleuch Kitchen tent hosted live sessions by chef Andrew Beattie from The Scottish Cookery School, as well as the Buccleuch Bake Off. It was won by Sarah Dalgliesh and Ann Kelly, with Tarka Willis Fleming and Emma Campbell triumphing in the children’s sections.
Entertainment in the main ring included the Kelvin Valley Lurcher and Terrier Show, Bob Hogg’s Sheepdog Display and the ever popular Lamb National, along with gundog displays by dog trainer David Lisett and the magic of horse whisperer Grant Bazin.
