Thousands of music lovers pitched up in one of the North-east’s most stunning historic homes for the return of the region’s “poshest” festival.
Around 6,000 people from across the region assembled at Fyvie Castle to watch country stars The Shires belt out their hits.
Fyvie Live organiser George Walker said the downpours had not dampened the spirits of the crowd.
He said: “The folk of the North-east are pretty hardy, a bit of mud and rain won’t put them off.”
The Shires headlined this year’s event, which has not been held since 2012, warming up the crowd with an hour-long set of their hits including My Universe, Jekyll and Hyde, Tonight and A Thousand Hallelujahs.
They were joined by Ciara Harvey from Edinburgh, who starred in The Voice earlier this year and gave some renditions of opera classics.
Glasgow sisters The Logans, a three-piece country act, entertained alongside the area’s own Kim Anderson.
Collections were taken for the Funding Neuro charity.
