Goldie also attended a series of plough days – where local authorities trained new drivers – as well as naming days, which saw councils invite school children to name their gritting vehicles.
The tour formed part of Econ manufacturers’s 50th birthday celebration.
Sales director Andrew Lupton said: “The tour of Scotland has been a great success.”
