Scots singer-songwriter Eddi Reader is to return to Stirling's Hogmanay line-up for the first time since 2005.

The 52-year-old Glasgow-born musician will be joined on stage at Stirling Castle by the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and the Heart of Scotland choir.

Stirling Council said it would be a "fantastic night" of entertainment.

Last year's concert featured flamboyant X Factor contestant Wagner, a month after he was kicked off the ITV1 reality show.

Steven Paterson, Stirling Council portfolio holder for citizenship, said: "Stirling is ready to welcome in the new year with a great line-up of Scotland's most talented performers and musicians.

"Set against the stunning backdrop of Stirling Castle we have all the ingredients in place for a fantastic night with an exciting mix of traditional and contemporary Scottish music.

"We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to our city to see in 2012 with our citizens."
