Vincent Duguid, left, and Michael Sheridan, of Sheridan Butchers in Ballater with the diploma they won for their pork link sausages in this week in 1997.
Mr Sheridan received a highly commended award for the sausages. It was presented to him by the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders Association at a ceremony in Perth.
Every year, the Federation hosts a different competition and the Ballater butcher enters it on a regular basis. In previous years, he has won prizes for black pudding and, again, sausages.
