Glasgow band Travis have been honoured for their contribution to Scottish music at the SSE Scottish Music Awards.
The band, who released their first album in 1997, won the Outstanding Contribution to Music prize at the 18th edition of the event in Glasgow.
Other winners at the event included alt rockers Twin Atlantic, who picked up the prize for best UK band. Biffy Clyro were named as winners of the best live band while KT-Tunstall received a prize for her songwriting.
The awards take place to raise money for music charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland.
Donald MacLeod, Nordoff Robbins Scotland chairman, said: ‘The SSE Scottish Music Awards are one of the main reasons Nordoff Robbins Scotland is able to continue delivering life-changing music therapy to so many vulnerable people across Scotland.
‘In the past year alone, thanks to SSE and our other valued partners, we have been able to impact the lives of more than 450 people, delivering more than 8,000 sessions conducted by our expert therapists.’
Previous winners of awards include Emeli Sande, Shirley Manson, Barbara Dickson and Nicola Benedetti.
