Flowers, fruit, vegetables, floral art, handicrafts and more went on show to the Bute public on Saturday and Sunday at the Rothesay Horticultural Society’s annual show.

Entries in 18 different sections were displayed in public for the first time on Saturday afternoon, following some intense deliberation by the show’s judges over who should receive prizes in each class.

The trophies this year were presented by local councillor and Argyll and Bute Provost Isobel Strong; the show’s main award, the Burgh of Rothesay Challenge Cup for the most first prizes in the show, went to the event’s convener, Mark McCormack.

For a full list of all the trophy winners, plus some great photographs from the show, see the next issue of The Buteman - on sale from Thursday, September 12.
