This weekend sees the 20th anniversary of Thunder in the Glens, the UK’s largest Harley-Davidson rally.

The three-day event in the Highlands is set to include ride-outs, displays, trade-stands and live music. Record numbers are expected to attend.

Speaking to The National, George McGuire, Rally coordinator, said:

“Pre-registration closed on July 5, with 2,500 registering. Interest since then has been quite phenomenal and we are expecting record numbers – around 3,500 paying attendees, not to count visitors and holidaymakers who visit Aviemore just to see the event.

“What makes TITG special is the welcome given by local people to everyone who attends, and the rally in turn embraces the local people. Everyone joins in.”

The event is estimated to be worth £10 million to the Scottish economy.
