The Isle of Arran Heritage Museum held its second restored vintage tractor rally on Sunday August 5 2012.

Nine tractors, eight from Arran and one from the mainland, gathered on the front green in an impressive display of how tractors have developed over the past 60 years.

The first place trophy was won by DG Weir of Machrie Garage with his 1949 prototype Ferguson 35 based on the original grey Fergie TE20.
