Ideal Home Show Scotland’s charity partner Erskine opened the show with a march of the Pipes and Drums of Queen Victoria School from Dunblane together with 26-year-old Erskine Shetland pony, Cruachan The Third, displaying an impressive set of medals.
The veterans’ charity also recreated a WW1 trench at the show, which was designed by Beechgrove Garden designer, Lynn Harris.
