Laurencekirk Gala Day, which was the culmination of a whole week of activities in the village, took place at the weekend.

The weather wasn’t terribly kind but Mearns folk didn’t let the rain put a dampener on their day.

Highland dancers from the Lindsay School of Dancing gave the usual wonderful display of their talents that we have come to expect from them, the bonny baby competition was almost too cute, and everyone loved getting a little bit grossed out at the Cool Creatures stall.

Here are a few of the moments photographer Andy Thomson captured on the day.
