Fiddlers from across the north of Scotland flocked to Elgin at the weekend for an annual music festival.
The 48th annual Festival of Scots Fiddle Music took place at Williamson Hall, with players taking to the stage to impress an audience of traditional music lovers.
Organised by the Elgin and Strathspey Reel Society, there were various competitions throughout the day including for children under nine and the best music ensemble.
Joint festival secretary Jim Hogg said it had been an “excellent” day and that the audience had been impressed by the talent on show.
He said: “There was great entertainment put on throughout the day and the whole thing was a great success.
“It’s important to keep traditional music alive in the region and especially at all levels from youngsters to the old, like we had children aged nine taking part up to the oldest competitor at 80.
“We are going to do this all again next year as it is something the audience enjoys.”
