"It was so inspiring to see so many girls coming together to sing, dance and have fun.

“Girlguiding Scotland is all about inspiring girls to aim high and be bold and I’m really proud to be involved in it.

"My advice to all the girls out there is to not let worrying about what other people think stop you from being yourself and doing what you love."

Pixie Lott added: "I loved being part of Tartan Gig - Girlguiding Scotland's biggest ever pop concert.

"As a former Brownie, I'm really proud to be part of this unique event. From playing games to camping, I loved my time as a Brownie and it's brilliant to see Girlguiding Scotland is still giving girls a space to be themselves, have fun and reach for the stars.

"Today really felt like a fantastic day for girl power."
