DANCER Ruth Mills stretched out in front of musician Mike Vass, writer and performer Alan Bissett and singer-songwriter Karine Polwart as they launched a campaign to show off the quality of arts and entertainment in the Highlands and Islands.

They were at Glasgow's Tramway to help launch the website, which seeks to highlight the joys of the so-called "epic stage" outwith the Central Belt.

The site represents venues and promoters in the Highlands & Islands, who between them stage more than 700 shows a year.
