A record number of music fans have attended a major festival at the Ashaig Airstrip on Skye.

The organisers of the two-day festival said the event attracted more than 10,000 people.

Festival Director John Gilbertson said he was delighted with the attendance, and that the crowd's behaviour had been "second to none".

Kasabian topped the bill on the main stage on Friday and Primal Scream headlined the festival on the Saturday.

The other acts on the bill included Ash, El Presidente, Echo and the Bunnymen, the Buzzcocks, Mylo, Calvin Harris, John Martyn and Dirty Pretty Things.

It was named Most Fan Friendly at last year's UK Festival Awards and this year has been included in the Highland 2007 Year of Culture programme.
