Participants of an annual celebration in the Scottish Borders, the Annan Riding of the Marches, have been welcomed by warm sunshine as well as enthusiastic crowds on Saturday.
The marches or boundaries of Annan have been ridden since the town was created a Royal Burgh more than 600 years ago.
More than one hundred horsemen and horsewomen ride the marches to ensure that the landmarks, cairns and other features have not been removed or tampered with.
