THE ROYAL Highland Show’s rich history has been projected onto buildings and historical landmarks during a month-long tour across Scotland which attracted 1,780 visitors across the eight dates.

And one of the venues was in the Scottish Borders.

The events, which were free to attend projected expressive imagery, woven together with never-before-seen treasures and untold stories from the Show archives.

Overall, there were 170 pieces of archive footage and images, put together by Edinburgh-based digital artists Bright Side Studios, that formed the 5-minute-long visual history of the Royal Highland Show.

The events aimed to raise awareness of the Show and highlight its positive impact on Scotland throughout the years.

They took place in eight locations around Scotland, referencing how the Show would tour each of the RHASS regions annually before it settled permanently at Ingliston in 1960. These were Edinburgh City Chambers, Jedburgh Town Hall, Drumlanrig Castle, Dumfries House, Alloa Tower, Glamis Castle, Haddo House and Eastgate Shopping Centre.

RHASS Chairman Bill Gray commented: “The Royal Highland Show is a key moment in both Scotland's events and agricultural calendar - these installations were the perfect showcase of its wide-ranging impact and influence over the last two centuries.

“However, the Royal Highland Show Illuminated also looked to the exciting future of both the Show and the Society. We hope that you’ll join us this June as we mark 200 years since that very first Show and celebrate the full return of Scotland’s biggest outdoor event.”
