The headline acts for this summer's Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival have been announced.

Texas and Deacon Blue will top the bill at the music event at Beauly, near Inverness.

Musician Newton Faulkner, gypsy punk band Drunken Balordi and Celtic rock fusion band Skerryvore, from Tiree, will be among the other acts appearing over 5 and 6 August.

Promoter Joe Gibbs described the line-up as an "exciting mix".

Tickets for last year's Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival were sold out in July.

About 13,000 music fans flocked to the event, which was headlined by Glasgow singer Amy MacDonald and the band Feeder.
