THE drive from Cardross into Helensburgh has been brightened up by bale art produced by the Loch Lomond and District Young Farmers Club.

The cheery creation, which is sited at Geilston Farm, was put together to support the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity and entered into the Clyde and Central District bale art competition.
