Braemar Gathering 2014


Braemar Gathering 2014

Braemar Gathering 2014 got off to a great start with a pleasant morning.  In the afternoon The Gathering was hit by heavy rain, causing difficulties for the hill racers.

Fortunately the sun broke through before Her Majesty The Queen arrived, accompanied by Prince Charles and the Duke of Edinburgh.
