Airport parking users for Edinburgh Airport have been warned to allow extra time for their journeys as the Royal Highland Show gets underway.
BAA noted that traffic on roads around the airport is expected to become a lot heavier as a result of the festival and told passengers to leave more time for their journeys.
The Royal Highland Show begins today and runs for four days.
Visitors to the show can enjoy a range of displays and activities relating to aspects of Scottish life.
As well as farming and agriculture, there are areas following outdoor pursuits, crafts, shopping and food.
One example is the display on renewable energy, sponsored by Scottish Hydro Electric.
In addition, almost 100 exhibitors will be present at the Food Hall, allowing visitors to sample a range of food including hog rolls and vegetarian sausages.
Venison, seafood and strawberries are also on the menu.
The Royal Highland Show brands itself as the "greatest show on earth".
