THE return of the Highland Historic Commercial Vehicle Road Run to Ross-shire was cause for celebration last weekend.

Saturday's road run was voted a resounding success with Dingwall Auction Mart hailed an ideal rallying point for the 66 vehicles and fascinated members of the public who came to see them away.

The journey from Dingwall to Ullapool allowed drivers to enjoy some stunning Wester Ross scenery along the way.

The Bedford Lemon and Co lorry was driven by Ewen Ross (Contin). The second Lochinver fish Leyland was driven by Jimmy Peat of Lochinver. Julie Board of Embo cut the ribbon. Colin Innes was the piper.

One of the organisers, Shirley Mackenzie, said: "We express our sincere thanks to Dingwall Auction Mart for allowing us the use of their premises, the harbour at Ullapool for allowing parking, The Royal Hotel, Ullapool for accommodating and looking after us so well, and last but not least all our sponsors and participants who have contributed so generously towards our event and enabled us to be able to donate £1200 to Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance."
