A ceilidh with a tartan and tweed theme is set to raise money for a project to create a Gaelic cultural centre in Inverness.

The Highlander bar in Church Street is holding a hoolie on February 29.

The event will also raise money for Cultarlann Inbhir Nis which aims to create a centre for locals, Gaelic speakers, learners, visitors and all those with an interest in the language and culture to meet.

The hoolie marks the first ceilidh this year held by The Highlander.

The free event will feature the band, Tartan Paint, and will have a tartan and tweed theme.

The best dressed chosen by the band will receive a meal for two at The Highlander.

Dancing will be from 7pm until 10pm. Food, priced £5, will be served from 5pm to 9pm.

Ross Mackay, events organiser, said: "It's going to be quite a special event especially as it is for free mid-week."
