IT'S one of the largest agricultural events in the UK, but hasn't been held in person for three years. Now the Royal Highland Show (RHS) is back and promises to be better than ever before. 

As many as 190,000 people are expected to head to Ingliston this week to see the very best of Scottish livestock and rural skills.

And while farming takes centre stage, it is bursting at the seams with content for those who prefer trees to cattle.
