This year’s Inverness Winter Festival climaxed with an estimated 12,000 spectators attending Scotland’s biggest free Hogmanay Party, The Red Hot Highland Fling in Northern Meeting Park Arena on 31st December.

Comedian Craig Hill hosted the four and a half hour show which featured headliners Capercaillie who were joined by two former winners of the Scottish Trad Music Live Band of the Year Award Breabach and Skerryvore.

Capercaillie featured the peerless voice of co-founder Karen Matheson who demonstrated why she is universally recognised and loved as one of the finest Gaelic singers alive today; and the band had the crowd jigging and reeling along to their set for with obvious delight.

The midnight moment featured a spectacular fireworks display and the traditional singing of Auld Lang Syne.

After the event it was announced that the show taken place without any incidents requiring attention by the Stewards or the Emergency Services personnel in attendance on the night to the delight of all. CLICK ON RELATED LINK BELOW TO SEE FOOTAGE FROM THE SHOW
