The Waterboys are to headline the Hogmanay celebrations at Stirling Castle this year.

Celtic rockers Skerryvore will also be playing, along with JJ Gilmour and Dundee band Model Aeroplanes.

Mark Pauley of Zisys Events said: "We have put together a very strong line-up this year which should appeal to the whole family.

"We're really looking forward to a fantastic night of live music, dancing, fireworks and celebration."

Stirling's Provost Mike Robbins said: "2014 has been a fabulous and unforgettable year which has seen Stirling stage some of the country's largest events and celebrations.

"We look forward to once again welcoming revellers from across the country and beyond to celebrate the New Year in our fair city."
