A North-east castle tried to dance its way into the record books at the weekend.
Staff at the National Trust for Scotland’s Castle Fraser Garden and Estate were hoping to beat the current Strip the Willow record held by Edinburgh and attract more than 1,914 dancers to join in at the ceilidh.
Sadly the turnout fell short of the record, with only 599 people joining in.
Not wanting to admit defeat however, staff have been checking other historic statistics in the hope it might yet have been a record breaker.
And at a massive 353.8 yards (323.5 metres), they hope to persuade Guinness experts to record it as the world’s longest.
