A brand new festival is set to launch in May this year.

The two-day festival, Beò, aims to be a celebration of the music, culture and heritage of the Highlands and Islands.

Taking its name from the Gaelic word ‘Beò’ meaning ‘Live’, the event was created by brothers, John and James Robertson.  The duo say they are aiming to "promote the use of Gaelic in an non-educational environment and allow all that attend to enjoy the unique Highland heritage that makes a place like Skye so special."

Situated in the south end of the island, the festival will take place in the historic grounds of the Armadale Castle.

Hòro-gheallaidh legends, The Vatersay Boys, will be joined by the roaring success of West Coast favourites, Trail West and Beinn Lee, the world-touring ‘Gaelic Supergroup’ Dàimh, and a line-up of the finest musicians the ceilidh scene has to offer will all be performing.

The festival will run on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 May.  Tickets are available online now at www.beofest.eventbrite.co.uk
