Mark Currie, Director of Operations at the Royal Highland Show, said: “We are delighted that show goers are clearly as excited as we are about the return of Scotland’s biggest outdoor event.

“With Friday and Saturday looking like sell-out days, we’re encouraging people who might be holding off to book Friday or Saturday now, or to consider a Thursday or Sunday visit.

“If for any reason you can’t attend this year, luckily you can still catch the action through RHS TV.
