Comedian Adrian Edmondson and his band The Bad Shepherds are to play this year's Loopallu music festival.

The band lists the two-day event in Ullapool in September on their website.

Edmondson is best known for his character Vyvyan in the comedy The Young Ones.

The Bad Shepherds, who were nominated for best live act in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, are also to perform at the Hebridean Music Festival.

Organisers of Loopallu describe it as one of the UK's most remote festivals.

The full line-up for the event has still to be announced.
