A former Turriff-based record company has been sharing its videos online.

Ross Records released more than 300 albums as well as more than 30 videos, and while the music continues to be available on music streaming services the videos ceased to be available for purchase.

These videos are no longer stocked by any retailers, however owner Gibson Ross thought it was a shame that all of the footage they collected over the years was now gathering dust and decided the time was right to share with the world through the power of free streaming service Youtube.

He said: "During our time in Turriff we were involved in the music business as Ross Records as well as having the pharmacy on Main Street.

"During that time we released over 300 albums of mainly Scottish traditional music and also filmed more than 30 videos which were all latterly available on DVD.

"All the audio recordings are available on iTunes, Amazon Music and Spotify but the DVDs are not available in retail outlets anymore and with that in mind we thought it would be a good idea to make them available to watch for free on the worldwide platform that is YouTube.

"Initially we uploaded all the full length videos but recently we have put on all the individual video tracks which are usually three to five minutes in length to make it easier for people to select what they would like to see and there are now 462 separate items."

A range of videos from Ross Records are now available to enjoy on Youtube.

Some of the most anticipated videos include a full length performance of Robert Lovie Live At Buckley's and a selection of videos of pipers Bill Hepburn and his son Billy as well as the ever-popular Auld Meal Mill.

As well as musical performances the footage includes footage of Turriff and Fyvie which is sure to bring back memories as well as a film on making a butterie at McKenzie's Bakery and making mealie puddings at Brown The Butchers.
