Enthusiasts from all over the North-east are expected to attend one of the region’s biggest car shows at the National Trust for Scotland’s Drum Castle.

The Deeside attraction will be the venue for a huge selection of some of the finest Jaguar vehicles owned in the UK - both old and new.

The spectacular event will be held on Sunday, July 29.

Now in its 19th year, the Annual Jaguar Classic Car Show, hosted by the Grampian Region of Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club (GRJEC), will showcase iconic Jaguars dating back as far as the 1950s, including renowned classics and modern favourites.

Aidan McAleese, Drum Castle’s visitor services supervisor, said: “Set against the dramatic backdrop of Drum Castle, which is one of 26 castles and great houses the National Trust for Scotland cares for and protects, this annual event always proves a hit with seasoned and amateur car enthusiasts alike.

“Hundreds of people flock to the event every year, and we’re looking forward to welcoming this year’s visitors who will be able to admire the impressive display of vehicles.”

As well as enjoying ornate examples of British car manufacturing on the castle’s expansive South Lawn, visitors will also be treated to a whole host of entertainment, including music from the Inverurie Pipe Band.

The gates will open at noon and the event will run until 4pm.

Ticket prices are £4 adult and £2 concession.

GRJEC’s chosen charity to benefit from the event this year is Mental Health Aberdeen.

The club encourages people to join members at its monthly meetings, regardless of the age, standard and type of Jaguar owned.

A spokesperson said: “Whether you just want to talk car, get local advice or meet other Jaguar owners for a social evening then your local region is the best place for you and your Jaguar to be.”
