A BIG top set up at Bught Park was bouncing at the weekend, as two of Scotland’s biggest bands came to town for a pair of huge gigs.

Trad titans Skipinnish celebrated 20 years together with a two-hour show on Friday night in front of more than 4000 people.

The group led them through sets and songs from throughout their career, the audience singing every word of songs like Alive and Walking on the Waves.

And the folk stars have already been announced to return to Inverness, taking the headline slot at the city’s Red Hot Highland Fling Hogmanay celebrations.

Just a day later a sold-out 5500 crowd crammed themselves under the canvas for Leith legends The Proclaimers, returning to the city for the second time in the space of 12 months after last November’s show at Inverness Leisure.

After warm-up sets from Astrid, Zoe Graham, Be Charlotte and Fatherson, the Reid twins packed more than 20 songs into their hour-and-a-half long set – including anthemic hits I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles), Sunshine on Leith, and Letter From America.

The shows formed part of Inverness-based promoters LCC Live’s ongoing Live in the City series for 2019.

The next shows will see Kaiser Chiefs play the Northern Meeting Park on Saturday, August 17 before Madness visit the same arena on Friday, August 23.
