The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have had a day at the races - and backed a charitable cause in the process.
Charles and Camilla were guests of honour for Ladies Day at Ayr Racecourse, Ayrshire, which is holding Scotland's biggest flat racing meeting.
The fixture, part of the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Festival, was raising funds for Dumfries House, a stately home and estate near Cumnock, which the Prince helped to save for the nation five years ago.
First Minister Alex Salmond, himself a keen race-goer, was among the welcoming party which greeted the couple at the course on Friday afternoon.
Charles and Camilla, known in Scotland as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay, began their visit by unveiling a plaque to mark the formal renaming of The Paddock Stand to become The Rothesay Stand.
