He welcomed the guests, some of whom were in Scottish national dress, before giving the Selkirk Grace.
Tattie Soup was the first course on the menu, which was followed by a series of appropriate musical items by members of the audience.
The haggis was piped in and Ross gave the Address to the Haggis before the main course was served. It was, of course, Haggis, Neeps and Tatties.
More entertainment followed before the Tipsy Laird Trifle was served.
There were several toasts during the evening: Gordon proposed a Toast to the Lassies and Lizzie replied to this. Andy Stewart gave a recitation of Holy Willie's Prayer and Patrick gave an amusing toast to The Immortal Memory before coffee, cheese and oatcakes.
The evening was concluded with a rousing rendition of 'Flower of Scotland' and 'Auld Lang Syne'.
Contributors to the evening included Rob and Lesley, Ferrers Reel, Clive, Mike, Seth, Bruce, Jane H and Jane M.
