There was magic in the air last Wednesday when the Stewartry village of Borgue was briefly transformed into the Holy Land.
Pupils from Borgue Primary School were holding a full dress rehearsal or their Nativity Play when photographer Eric Sloan called into the village hall to take these stunning photographs.
The lead roles of Mary and Joseph were taken by Jaine-Leigh McClure and Stephen Dale Sunley and the storyteller was Sally Shaw.
The children were due to perform their nativity in front of family and friends that evening. A perfect start to the Christmas celebrations.
