The Stephen Smyth Band from Ireland have won their second Caithness Triple C Country Music Club band of the year award.
They were also the last band to win the award - prior to Covid cancelling events.
The presentation – this time for 2022 – always runs a year behind, date wise, as members vote for their favourite band at the end of each year.
Club treasurer Isobell Beattie is presented band leader Stephen Smyth with a special engraved bottle of Old Pulteney, while secretary Janis Scollay (right) prepares to hand over the award.
Vice chairperson Marion Gordon made the presentation to band member John Taylor. Looking on are (from left) committee member Elma Budge, chairman John Gunn and committee member Willie Robertson.
Isobell Beattie, who celebrated her 80th birthday on November 17, also received a surprise presentation of a bouquet of flowers and a birthday balloon.
The presentation took place during a club night in Harpers function room in Wick.
