Won't be going now they sent my entry fee back poultry entries full and I only had some geese and turkeys for sale. I could still sell my sheep if I wanted, don't think so to far for to little.

Mine was sent back too ,,,,,,,,,,,,,There was serton folk that had a lot of stock and they took 30 pens its a nice sale but small if you live north or west its not worth going to thainstone so you do dingwall cheapest pens and a good crowd .My stock will be going Carlie dingwall march unless i get a sale ,I hope to see some folk there will be some from mull Orkney Shetland etc .

The RBST Northetrn Scotland group will be there. It doesn't cost anything to join the group who have a very exciting event that they would like to be at in the Highland next year. If you would like to help please get in touch with us during the sale for more details.

Well then who went and what did you think. I sold some sheep and bought a couple of trios of bantams a long day never saw so many highland cattle at a sale before, Zwarble sheep the size of a small pony. Large queues for lunch, a real buzz about the place friendly people and the marts staff were great.

We went and had a lovely day. Good food and a friendly crowd. We weren't selling, just buying. The sale was over saturated with highland cattle but they were a magnificent sight! Ducks went for low prices but chickens sold well. A few no shows as always - always seems to be the ones I'm interested in!  ::)
