Glorious weather last weekend brought the crowds out to witness the annual Bo’ness Hill Climb Revival.

Attracting more than 100 cars, the event saw drivers pit their skills against the snaking half-mile course located within the Kinneil Estate.

This year’s hill climb featured a recreation of the 1953 televised Scotland v England Hill Climb Challenge and two teams of drivers, captained by Malcolm Wishart for Scotland and Geoff Hunt for England battled against the clock on the Sunday afternoon session.

To the disappointment of the hosts and delight of the visitors, England came out on top with a score of ten points to Scotland’s eight.
