The World Buttery Championship 2018 winner was at Ellon Farmers Market on Saturday.

Mark Barnett of New Pitsligo brought along 500 of the award winning butteries to Neil Ross Square and they were quickly snapped up by visitors despite the pouring rain.

Mark said it was “a bit of a shock” to win the award on Saturday, June 16.

His wife Lorraine, who works at the Gold-n-Crispy chip shop in New Pitsligo, added: “We haven’t been here before but we are surprised at the number of hardy souls that have come out in this rain!”
