Eliza and the Bear and Hunter and the Bear have both joined the line-up for this year's Loopallu music festival.

Essex band Eliza and the Bear's debut album went straight into the UK top 40 charts following its release earlier this year.

London-based Hunter and the Bear have played at Loopallu in Ullapool before and regularly tour Scotland.

Singer-songwriter Edwyn Collins and his wife, writer Grace Maxwell, will appear in the festival's literary tent.

In an event organised by the Ullapool Book Festival, they will talk about Maxwell's book Falling and Laughing: The Restoration of Edwyn Collins.

It charts the Glaswegian musician's recovery from two severe brain haemorrhages in 2005.

Headline acts for Loopallu on 30 September and 1 October were announced earlier this year. They include The Wonder Stuff.

Other acts confirmed included The Selector, Galleon Blast - folk rockers whose line up includes BBC Radio DJ Mark Radcliffe - Manran and Lucy Spraggan, who appeared in 2012's X Factor competition.
