A festive night market will be taking place at Loch Lomond Shores later this week.

The centre will host a special Christmas event from 3pm to 8pm on Thursday, November 23 - with a second event to follow at the same times on Thursday, December 7.

Visitors will be able to browse stalls offering home baking, alcohol, and Christmas gifts as well as a variety of street food options.

Audrey Calder from Loch Lomond Shores said: “We’re delighted to announce these two late night openings in the lead up to Christmas.

“Our stores are stocked with great gift ideas and these late nights will add a wee bit of festive magic to Christmas shopping.

“Being able to also have a drink, snack or meal as well as enjoy the atmosphere of the night market and our Christmas decorations and lights all makes for a great shopping experience.”

Margaret Ann McKenna of MM Photography will also be offering Christmas family picture sessions with packages costing from £45 for five digital images.

There will be a prize draw on both nights to win £200 to spend at Loch Lomond Shores which visitors can enter by completing the form at the Leading Labels cash desk.

Most of stores will also be open late and live entertainment will be provided by buskers.
