Police have praised the majority of revellers at this year’s Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival as they revealed that 12 arrests were made at the event.
The force said there had been “very low levels of offences” over the weekend, with the arrests said to be relating to “minor” incidents.
Police added that there had been a total of 48 “personal quantity” drug seizures made at the site, with reports to be sent to the procurator fiscal in due course in relation to the cases.
They said the drug seizures were made “despite the pre-event warnings from both organisers and police that officers would be targeting such activity”.
A total of 18,500 festival-goers attended the event, which has been held annually at the Belladrum Estate, near Beauly, since 2004.
The Friday was described by organisers as the “wettest ever” day in the festival’s history, but it did not damped spirits.
Headliners this year included Franz Ferdinand, Twin Atlantic, the Pretenders and Sister Sledge.
Police event commander Chief Inspector Brian Mackay said: “I’d like to pass on our gratitude to the vast majority of festival goers who made Belladrum a memorable weekend and a friendly event to police.
“There were low levels of crime recorded which did not disrupt the running of the event.
“I hope everyone who attended had a good weekend and a safe journey home afterwards.”
Fears of traffic gridlock, particularly on the Thursday as the start of the festival coincided with the Black Isle Show at Muir of Ord, were largely averted, according to Belladrum organiser Joe Gibbs.
He said: “Traffic was fine. What very often presents problems for events is wet weather but thanks to all our systems we had in place, the traffic flow was getting in without delays.
“I think that was particularly due to people taking the advice and arriving early, and the work of the police and authorities.”
