To mark his 80th birthday - which falls on September 23 - the Earl of Southesk entertained a company of 230 - his estate tenants and employees, and their families - at a party at Kinnaird Castle on Saturday. 
Two pipers from the Scots Guards - the Earl’s regiment - played on the terrace in front of the floodlit castle and through the corridors. 
There was a buffet supper for the guests and a band played for dancing.
