It’s Wigtown Show tomorrow and our choice of Galloway Past Picture looks back at shows gone past.

This one is from the 1970s in the old showfield at Southfield Park, Wigtown.

It shows the late Miss Flora Stuart presenting the long service awards at the show.

Miss Flora was instrumental in creating a world class pedigree herd of Belted Galloway Cattle from her base at the Old Place of Mochrum.

Before she died in 2005, when asked what had been her biggest ever highlight in a long history of showing Galloway Belties, she recalled one of her cattle winning the Champion of Champions at Wigtown Show - “the highlight of my year” she had said.
