In pictures: Images from wildlife-themed Belladrum

The 11th Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival has taken place near Beauly in the Highlands.

Almost 16,000 people turned out for the music, stage shows and to get married.

A number of weddings were held during the event this year.

One bride and her groom left the Belladrum Temple, where the ceremonies were held, to the music of a pipe band.

Revellers are encouraged to dress up for Belladrum. This summer's theme was wildlife.

Reminders of the theme could be found throughout the site and included a gorilla and elephants.

Belladrum was held on Friday and Saturday.

The headline acts included Razorlight, Sir Tom Jones and Frightened Rabbit.

Jones was the main act on Friday night.

Street trials rider Danny MacAskill, from Skye, and Duncan Shaw, from Inverness, also took their new Drop and Roll bike show to Bella.

The event ended late on Saturday with a fireworks display and the burning of an elephant-shaped bonfire.
