Health chiefs issued advice for Belladrum festival-goers to remain safe and enjoy the weekend.

“Substances like ecstasy and cocaine can cause dehydration and overheating, especially when mixed with alcohol and dancing in warm weather.”
NHS health improvement specialist Eve MacLeod added: “This is a weekend-long festival so pace yourself by drinking slowly, having non-alcoholic spacers, having lower strength alcoholic drinks and avoiding mixing drinks.

Among the most significant changes will be to parts if the B9169 which will be closed near the Muir of Ord industrial estate with a 30mph limit around the Black Isle Show ground as well as a further 20mph through much of the rest of the village.
The A833 Milton to Phoineas Road between the A862 to its junction with the Tomnacross Road in Kiltarlity will be closed from Thursday morning to Sunday afternoon.
