Classic and rare motorbikes will roar into the National Trust for Scotland’s Haddo House this weekend when the property hosts its first Hit The Road Festival.

The motorbike extravaganza will have classic and custom motorbikes on display, a slow ride competition and metal artwork.

Event organiser Irene Biedma said: “In the past it might have been horses and carriages that pulled up in front of Haddo House, so we are looking forward to seeing these ‘iron horses’ sweep up the driveway.

“It’s going to be a spectacular setting.”

The Hit The Road festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday from 11am through until 6pm.

It costs £6 for adults, £3 for children and £16 for a family.
