Superstar DJ Fatboy Slim wowed an ecstatic crowd of almost 25,000 on the banks of Loch Ness but a local villager had to save the gig from disaster.
Paving slabs stopped the decks from rocking
As preparations for the gig were almost complete the stage crew realised there was too much rock in Fatboy's decks.
To avoid the discs skipping on the turntables, a call went out to search the area for two paving slabs to make the stage set-up rock steady.
A local man volunteered to dig up part of his garden path to save the day.
He had been approached by a member of the community council who had been scouring the lochside village of Dores for two 2ftx2ft concrete slabs.
The paving slabs were duly installed and the gig went off without a rock DJ.
The party finished with a fireworks display as Fatboy Slim, aka Norman Cook, played his seminal dance track, Praise You, with a giant Nessie bobbing in time to the music projected on giant video screens around him.
If this first Rock Ness is voted a success, the event could be staged over two days next year.
