Buckland Burn-Up back with a bang

The Buckland Burn-Up made a comeback to Kirkcudbright after almost 20 years on Sunday and attracted a huge turn out of competitors.

The five-mile road race following the old route, albeit back to front, was a huge success and organisers said apart from a few teething problems, it couldn’t have gone better. Thanks to Rosie Chilton for the photographs.
