Hundreds of music fans have enjoyed the first festival to take place in Scotland since coronavirus restrictions were lifted.
Capers in Cannich welcomed 250 music fans to its nine-acre site near Beauly in Inverness-shire over the weekend.
Bands such as Inverness outfit Hò-rò, Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5, Heron Valley and Moray musician Calum Jones all took to the stage to entertain music fans.
Festival-goers stayed in luxury bell tents with private gardens and individual space in front of the stage, allowing them to enjoy the entertainment while staying in social bubbles.
David Blair of Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5, said: “We were all eagerly waiting to play our first festival in 20 months and it was such a joyous feeling playing for real life people again in such a stunning location.
“It was magic getting that live reaction from The Dijon Family and experiencing the irreplaceable feeling of human connection through playing live music.
“We were honoured to play this history-making festival and delighted the team took this important step to get live music going again in Scotland.”
Capers in Cannich Director Karl Falconer said: “Capers in Cannich was designed especially for the world we now live in and we’re over the moon that the opening weekend has been such a roaring success.
“It’s an incredible feeling to be able to bring live entertainment back to Scotland in a safe environment – it’s a moment to remember.
“The friendly, community atmosphere of the festival – not to mention the sunshine – made it a brilliant place to be and we want to thank everyone who joined us for this milestone opening weekend.
“We’ve got a string of other dates taking place throughout the summer and can’t wait to welcome more people of all ages to experience this special wee event we’ve created.”
Capers in Cannich will run throughout the summer, from June to September, with acts such as Face the West, Mark Sharp & the Bicycle Thieves, Bombskare, Wrest and RANT all set to play the festival in the coming weeks.
