Travis and The Wombats set to headline Belladrum 2012

Frightened Rabbit and We Are Scientists also appearing

Travis and The Wombats have been announced as headliners for this year's Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.

The Wombats will headline on Fri 8 Aug while festival favourites Travis will close the show on Sat 4 Aug, in what will be their only Scottish festival appearance this year.

The two-day festival takes place on Belladrum Estate, near Beauly in Inverness and will see over 90 acts perform over five stages.

Festival director Joe Gibbs urged fans to purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment as the festival has sold out the last three years running.

He also revealed plans for a new section on their website offering festival-goers the chance to sell and transfer unwanted tickets in an ethical manner after several fans were scammed by ticket touts at last year's event.

Other acts scheduled to perform include Beverly Knight, Frightened Rabbit, We Are Scientists, Ryan Keen, Nina Nesbitt and Fink.

To Kill A King, Slow Club, The Dangle Berries, The Whiskey River Band, The Red Kites and Stanley Odd are also on the bill.

Tickets are on sale now and available from tartanheartfestival.co.uk, priced £95.
