Police Scotland have been full of praise as this year’s Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival continued to live up to its reputation as a family friendly trouble-free gathering.

The force said there were ‘very low levels of offences experienced across the weekend with 12 arrests in relation to minor offences’ at the three day event.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "A mid-double figure number of personal quantity drug seizures were also made with reports to be sent to the Procurator Fiscal in due course."

Event commander Chief Inspector Brian Mackay said: "I’d like to pass on our gratitude to the vast majority of festival goers who made Belladrum a memorable weekend and a friendly event to police.

"There were low levels of crime recorded which did not disrupt the running of the event.

"I hope everyone who attended had a good weekend and a safe journey home afterwards."

The event was a sell out again with the weather staying dry and the sun putting in an occasion appearance on Saturday after a damp first two days to the festival by Beauly.

Many revellers came prepared with their wellies so they could negotiate the mud especially at the main Garden stage.

Headliners Franz Ferdinand closed the festival on Saturday night, with Birdy, KT Tunstall and Colonel Mustard and The Dijon 5 amongst those on the bill beforehand.
