6?year old Robbie Peace. Boys with their families on the Sands of Wright beach practise ploughing the sands in straight lines, ahead of competing the following day at the South Ronaldsay Boy's Ploughing Match Festival, Scotland, on Friday 14th August 2015. The competition is held to determine who can plough the neatest furrows using miniature hand-crafted ploughs. These ploughs are made from wood and metal, and are handed down through the generations. Only males may compete in the competitions, with prizes given in different age groupings and categories.
