Even a gusty wind in the morning didn’t put anyone off – villagers were ready to get back to normal, whatever the weather!
Gala chairwoman Lee King said: “It was great to see our wee village getting back to celebrating the gala day – what a great fun filled week we had.
“Saturday morning started very windy but it didn’t stop lots of people turning out to celebrate.
“On behalf of the gala day committee I would like to thank everyone who helped make the day a special one to remember.”
Following a very colourful procession of characters, Chloe Watt was crowned Queen of the Heather by Alison Lawrie, who was queen in 1980, as her beautifully turned out Court looked on.
