Robbie Coltrane has been honoured for his "outstanding contribution" to film as the Scottish Baftas returned after a one year absence.

The Harry Potter and Cracker star picked up his award at a glamorous ceremony in Glasgow, attended by some of Scotland's biggest names in film and television.

Actor and director Peter Mullan was another big winner on the night, scooping two accolades for his film Neds.

Mullan collected both the best director and best writer awards for the piece, which tells the story of John McGill, a teenage boy growing up in 1970s Scotland.

The 2010 drama Donkeys also netted two prizes. It was crowned best feature film, while actor James Cosmo collected the award for best actor or actress in film for his role in the movie, which charts one man's attempt to reunite his estranged family.

In other categories, BBC Scotland documentary The Scheme, which follows the lives of six different families living in an Ayrshire housing scheme, picked up an award for the best factual series.

Limmy's Show picked up the entertainment programme gong, beating off competition from Burnistoun and Rab C Nesbitt.

Also collecting an award was young actress Jayd Johnson, who received the prize for an actress or actor in TV for her part in Field Of Blood, beating off competition from co-stars Peter Capaldi and Ford Kiernan.

Other winners on the night included Case Histories, which was awarded best TV drama, while the prize for outstanding contribution to broadcasting went to Eileen Gallagher of Shed Productions.

The Cineworld Audience Award went to Fast Romance, which was chosen by film fans who had been voting online for their favourite Scottish movie of the past two years. The ceremony at the Radisson Blu on Argyle Street was hosted by Glaswegian comedian Kevin Bridges.
