Biffy Clyro voted Scottish Band of the Decade
Ayrshire rockers Biffy Clyro have topped a poll to find the best Scottish band of the last decade.
The poll was conducted by The Scotsman newspaper who crowned the rock trio the best band of the noughties.
The trio, who hail from Kilmarnock, saw off competition from the likes of Franz Ferdinand and Frightened Rabbit to land over 35 per cent of the overall votes.
Franz Ferdinand, whose first two albums were certified platinum in the UK, were named runners-up with 13 per cent of the votes, while acclaimed indie act Frightened Rabbit came in third with 10 per cent.
Other Scottish bands to appear in the top 10 survey include Travis, Idlewild, Mogwai, The Fratellis and Belle & Sebastian.
