View to a thrill at music event

Dundee band The View are the latest act to be booked for the Belladrum Tartan Heart music festival in the Highlands.
Organisers of the event on 11 and 12 August said the band have been getting extensive airplay on BBC Radio 1.

Also appearing will be The Automatic, whose song Monster was sampled by DJ Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, at Rock Ness at Dores in June.

The Tartan Heart festival is being held at Belladrum Estate, Beauly, Inverness-shire.

The event is expected to draw a crowd of 10,000 people.

A bill of more than 90 acts are expected to appear including Embrace, Echo & The Bunnymen and The Wonder Stuff.

The BBC Radio Scotland Seedlings stage features Highland artistes Jyrojets, the Rites, Shutter, the Now, Galipaygos, Call to Mind, Our Small Capital, The Side, and Stereoglo.

These were among 22 unsigned Scottish acts chosen by BBC Radio Scotland presenters Vic Galloway and Tom Morton and Highlands and Islands Labels out of more than 400 submissions.

Also open to festival goers will be The Miniscule of Sound, which claims to be the smallest nightclub in the world.
