Lomond Shores lights
Thousands of people are expected to gather at Loch Lomond Shores for the Christmas lights switch-on and firework display this weekend.
The free event on Sunday is extremely popular, with around 15,000 people attending last year.
This year promises to be even bigger and better, with extra decorations and activities, including the launch of a continentalstyle Christmas market with roast chestnuts, mulled wine, German sausages, gingerbread and treats.
Other activities include facepainters, balloons, a cartoonist and a carousel.
The Kilted Skirlie restaurant will have a special festive menu available on the day and is taking bookings for tables with a vantage point from which to view the fireworks.
Lomond Shores manager Audrey Reid said: “We’re very excited about Christmas this year.
“The lights and fireworks event has been really popular so we’re expecting a good turnout.”
