THOUSANDS of people packed the centre of Inverness as the town hosted the world premiere of the film, Loch Ness.
The family drama starred Ted Danson, Joely Richardson, Ian Holm and James Frain.
Celebrity spotters gathered outside the Town House as a procession of stars arrived for a civic reception. The guests included Bob Geldof, his girlfriend, French actress Jeanne Marine, Koo Stark, comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel, TV personality Anneka Rice, Wet Wet Wet's Tommy Cunningham and actress Emily Lloyd.
They were officially welcomed by the Provost of Inverness, William Fraser.
Afterwards, the stars were led across town by a pipe band to the La Scala Cinema in Strothers Lane.
