MILLPORT'S Country Music Festival attracted the cream of the genre to the Isle of Cumbrae for another spectacular three days of live gigs.

Big names from both sides of the Atlantic performed on the main stage with up and coming talent on the Maverick Stage, line dancing, fundraising and the traditional grand parade making a brilliant weekend.

Replica guns may have been banned but the event still went with a bang as top quality acts were truly taken with the vibe of the small island with the big heart.

Cam, American Young, CC Smugglers and Morganway were among the highlights of a memorable weekend as the Garrison grounds were once again turned into a spectacular live concert venue.

Sharing the limelight on grand stage on Sunday afternoon were The Upbeats, headed by Largs Academy's principal music teacher Craig Smith.

Californian-based headliner Cam told her 245,000 Instagram followers that she had loved performing to "the sweetest country crowd on the cutest Scottish island.”

Gavin Chittick, organiser of the festival, said: "The entire team involved in Millport Country Music Festival would like to thank each and every single person that made the weekend possible, whether you were an artist, part of the event production and support team, a volunteer or a ticket holder that shared the weekend with us.

"We hope that the 25th year of the festival was as enjoyable for you as it was for us. This year was truly top notch and Millport's profile as a country music venue has gone supersonic in recent years."

A total of £900 was raised for the Save the Waverley campaign at a special auction as part of the event.
