Strongmen dressed in kilts competed in traditional challenges such as "throwing the hammer" and "tossing the caber", a large wooden log, in the green landscape of Perthshire.

Martin Bristow was crowned the winner of the haggis contest, eating a pound of the sheep innards pudding in one minute and 47 seconds, reveals Heart Scotland News.

Amid the fun and games the debate over the September referendum on independence for Scotland was never far away, with both "Yes" and "No" sides campaigning at the event.
