The 39th Scottish Transport Extravaganza, the premier vintage motoring event in Scotland, and one of the largest in the UK, is almost here.

The event, at Glamis Castle on July 13 and 14, has an incredible amount of things for all the family to see and do (and eat!).

On display over the weekend there are over 1,000 vehicles representing a wide array of transports, including veteran, vintage and classic vehicles; such as cars, commercials, military, tractors, steam engines, motor cycles and much more.

More than 40 car marque clubs have displays.

There are 150 or so stands comprising autojumble, motor trade, antiques, fund-raising and a craft tent, where you can see craft persons making their own goods.

In the ring to entertain this year there will be 3Sixty Bicycle Stunt Team with their daring escapades.

And on top of that there are a multitude of parades, pipe bands, and on Saturday only there is the Charity Companion Dog Show in aid of Dogue De Bordeaux Welfare.

Static displays include a magnificent Fairground Organ and some fascinating Birds of Prey.

Organisers appreciate that coming to an event such as this can give you a good appetite and there are plenty of good quality caterers willing to provide much needed nourishment, whether it be a snack, a full meal or just a cool ice cream.

Secretary Lesley Munro said: “We are very fortunate to be able to hold the Extravaganza in the beautiful grounds of Glamis Castle. The Castle provides a magnificent backdrop to our event and we can recommend the 39th Transport Extravaganza, so do come along and enjoy a great day out for all the family.”

The event runs for both days from 9am to 5pm both days and parking for motorists is free. Dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on a lead.

Entry is as follows:

Saturday - adults, £8; children/OAPS £5.

Sunday - adults, £10; children/OAPS £6.
