Husky race taking place on snow for only second time in 30 years

A Highland husky race which is celebrating its 30th anniversary will take place on snow for only the second time.

Dog teams will take to the forest trail at Glen More for this weekend's annual Sled Dog Rally.

Most races have been on three-wheeled rigs due to a lack of the white stuff but this year competitors will be able to use their sledges.

Around 1000 dogs and their owners descend on the area each year for mushers it is a “must do” date for the diary.

Adult racers will take on a seven mile course while younger racers face a two mile track.

Three decades on the rally is still going strong and thousands of people are expected to head to Aviemore to see who can take the title of top dog.
