Locals were on the hunt over the weekend.

Not for the sunshine, which made a welcome appearance on Sunday – but for the elusive haggis!

The annual Haggis Hunt was staged at Letham Glen on Sunday afternoon, and adults and children alike got stuck into the search for the wee beastie.

And organisers Medieval Methil were on hand to provide a little atmosphere in period costume.

According to legend, in ancient times the Kingdom of Fife was overwhelmed by the Great Haggis of the Glens, who devasted the area and ate everything in sight. Every year, around May 12, there’s the threat of another infestation, and only a search for the elusive haggis can prevent it.

Jackie Kirk from Medieval Methil said it was a good afternoon, and the group was now looking ahead to its annual medieval festival, which also takes place in the Glen.
