A DRIVE-IN show on the Black Isle was a sold-out success at the weekend with socially distanced revellers thrilled to be back enjoying live music again.

The gig staged by North Highland Events at the Black Isle Showground featured stars of the country scene including Mick Flavin, Gary Gamble and Barry Kirwan.

A bucket collection took in £600 for Highland Hospice.
