VISITORS from near and far flocked to Loch Lomond Shores on Saturday for the biggest event at the Balloch venue since the easing of Covid restrictions in the summer.

After being cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Loch Food and Drink Festival returned over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, September 4 and 5 - and hundreds of people from miles around flocked to the venue to make the most of the tasty treats brought along by vendors from across Scotland and beyond.

Alongside plenty of food and drink stalls including cooking demonstrations, world street food, whisky and gin tasting and fresh produce, there were live performances of music and dance throughout the weekend, with talented local artistes eager to strut their stuff in front of hungry festival-goers across both days of the event.

The annual event was sponsored by Loch Lomond Whiskies, Cash for Kids, MGM Mutho Hotels and EventScotland.
