St An­drews was the place to be for top sport­ing ac­tion yes­ter­day as the town hosted its an­nual High­land games.

Hun­dreds of spec­ta­tors de­scended on Sta­tion Park for the 33rd host­ing of the event, with ath­letes com­pet­ing in tra­di­tional run­ning races, cy­cling and heavy events.

Against the back­drop of the Old Course Ho­tel, pip­ing and High­land danc­ing events also took place, along with a tug o’ war.

The event was of­fi­cially opened by the City of St An­drews Pipe Band, while in­ter­na­tional tourists were also wel­comed to the event with the host­ing of an over­seas vis­i­tors’ race.
