Loch Lomond Shores welcomes the return of the 9th annual Loch Lomond Food and Drink Festival.

On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th September 2014, Loch Lomond Shores will transform into a foodie wonderland for a weekend of eating, drinking and entertainment.

Over the course of two days more than 50 of the finest food and drink producers from within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, alongside a selection of national and international suppliers, will gather at the stunning loch-side location.

Visitors can enjoy tasting delicious dishes, exquisite beverages and interactive cookery classes from renowned chefs.

The exciting line-up includes James Morton, celebrity baker and a finalist in the BBC’s Great British Bake Off, who will be demonstrating his baking skills and signing his award winning book, ‘Brilliant Bread’.

James has also kindly stepped up to being the ‘Head of Haggis’ at the McIntosh Foods Haggis Eating Competition run over both days.

James said:

“I am honoured to be invited to the Loch Lomond Food and Drink Festival. I can’t wait and the fact that it’s so close to home makes me very proud to be part of it. “It’s going to be an awesome weekend. I urge people to come along to enjoy great food and drink and soak up the festival vibe”.

Clare Gemmell, Loch Lomond Shores Manager, said:

“The Loch Lomond Food and Drink Festival is one of Scotland’s leading festivals and is a highlight on the Scottish culinary calendar.

“As well as incredible food and drink on offer, there is a stellar line-up of free entertainment for all the family including live music, dance performances, a mini zoo and face painting. “It’s an incredible weekend and with over 20,000 visitors expected to attend I am certain it to be our best year yet.”
