The highly popular annual Fife Show, held at Kinloss, near Cupar, provides a host of attractions for all the family.

Taking place on Saturday, it is run by the Fife Agricultural Association, and aims to give the public an opportunity to find out more about the local agricultural scene.

The layout allows visitors to have a close look at all the farm animals on show, together with current and vintage machinery.

Over the last few years, the show has extended into the realms of the wider environment and related countryside issues.
