Mark Felix; one of the worlds strongest men; lifts The Dinnie Stanes ( Dinnie Stones ) at Aboyne Highland Games on Royal Deeside.
Mark was challenged to repeat the legendary feat of Aboyne strongman Donald Dinne. Dinnie carried the stones over the width of Potarch Bridge.
A replica of Potarch Bridge was set up in the games arena. Mark successfully lifted and carried the stones; but was unable to carry them the full distance without putting them down several times.
Donald Dinnie was born in 1837, at Birse Aboyne.
