Loch Lomond Springfest 2020 has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Following official advice from the Scottish Government, Springfest Food and Drink Festival - which was set to take place on April 4 -5 at Loch Lomond Shores - will be rescheduled for a later date.

Organisers hope the event can be rescheduled for July with an exact date, yet to be confirmed.

Anyone who has booked tickets for Loch Lomond Whiskies Whisky tasting sessions during the Springfest weekend will be issued with a full refund and sent an email notification of the refund and a new dates as soon as they have been confirmed.

Audrey Calder, from Loch Lomond Shores, said: "It’s a real pity to have to postpone #LLSpringfest2020given the success of our two major food and drink festivals last year but we’re determined that they will both be back this year, just later than scheduled, and will give everyone a much needed great day out!

“In the meantime, Loch Lomond Shores is very much open for business while we follow all recommended government guidelines and closely watch the developing situation to ensure our visitors enjoy a safe visit to Loch Lomond Shores."
