Crowds flock to Glamis

More than 15,000 people thronged the grounds of Glamis Castle at the weekend to make the 39th Scottish Transport Extravaganza “the best in years”.

Glorious weather over Saturday and Sunday brought together hundreds of exhibitors to provide an automotive feast for the thousands of enthusiasts who had travelled from across Tayside and further afield to enjoy one of Scotland’s premiere car shows.

As well as a huge range of military vehicles, classic, vintage and veteran cars, motorcycles, tractors and buses there was also a wide variety of stalls including the ever-popular auto jumble and trade stands and a birds of prey display.

The extravaganza also enjoyed one of its highest turnouts of car clubs in recent years, with 47 different organisations represented.

Lelsey Munro, secretary of the Strathmore Vintage Vehicle Club which organises the event, said the weekend was “just fantastic”.

She said: “The weather was the best we’ve had in six or seven years and the gate was incredible. Everything just lined up for us this year to make it one of the best events we’ve had for a while.”
