Thousands of people are expected to attend the Western Isles' Hebridean Celtic Festival, which runs until Saturday night.

Now in its 17th year, HebCelt will be headlined by The Waterboys, The Proclaimers and Kassidy.

Other acts include Julie Fowlis, Larkin Poe, Skerryvore, The Sea Atlas and Washington Irvine.

Organisers hope the event will match last year's attendance of 14,500 people.

New features of the festival include a smartphone app which provides dates, times and venues of every concert.
