Over a thousand vintage and classic vehicles of all shapes and sizes made the journey to Thirlestane Castle, Lauder on Sunday, for one of the biggest and best car rallies in the country.

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Mini, events included a classic Mini raffle, a record-breaking team challenge to see how many people could fit into a Mini, and a celebration of Minis at the movies. Photographs by Phil Wilkinson.
