COLOMBO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan stocks hit six-week closing highs on Tuesday, led by large caps such as Ceylon Tobacco Co Plc and Nestle Lanka Plc in thin volume, brokers said.

The main share index ended 0.51 percent, or 29.95 points firmer at 5,897.05, its highest since Aug. 27.

Investors were looking at fundamentally strong stocks and were betting on shares such as Ceylon Tobacco and Nestle Lanka, dealers said.

Shares in market heavyweight Ceylon Tobacco rose 3.69 percent to 1,115.20 rupees, while Nestle Lanka gained 1.71 percent to 1,995.00 rupees.

The day's turnover was 490.3 million rupees, well below this year's daily average of about 873 million rupees.
