Crowds flocked to Thainstone over the weekend for the return of the Grampian Truck Show.

More than 300 trucks and other vehicles were showcased on Saturday and Sunday.

Another aim of the event, which was returning after a hiatus of many years, was to raise money for charity.

Inside the main centre featured the super trucks which included a spooky showstopper from John Templeton and one from Malcolm Group inspired by the movie Braveheart.

A bright pink truck from Jim Jamieson Quarries named Molly's Toybox was raising money for local charities including Friends of the Special Nursery and Aberdeen Neonatal Unit.

Outside there was a huge variety of lorries on display, which included vintage models and even military vehicles.

One of the huge highlights that could not be missed was The Combine Express from Manners Transport.

Some of the trucks travelled as far as Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Ireland and from around the UK.

Allan Mackay from Brora compered the event over the weekend which also saw class awards handed out, a charity auction and a range of trade stands.
