In pictures: Heriot-Watt's School of Textiles and Design degree show

Galashiels' historic Abbotsford House - otherwise known as the home of Sir Walter Scott - has opened its doors to talent of a different kind as students from Heriot Watt showcased their creative output at the university's annual degree show.

The show itself was held in a marquee in the grounds of the 19th century house overlooking the River Tweed, and celebrated the innovation, technological expertise, craft skills and cutting-edge design displayed in the work of students, including Harris Tweed floor length gowns and a sports collection that uses specialised knitted fabrics which keep athletes cool.

Students exhibiting work included Hiliory Mason, whose collection Metallic Fusion featured a modern take on the poncho; Pamela McCallum, whose white two-piece outfit came from her collection Innocence is Tragedy; and Coleen Stevenson who showed a panelled dress in an organically patterned fabric from her collection Rendering Reality.

Other students who exhibited included Ruth Tremmel, Kirsty Webster and Aimee Paget.
