THE bonnie banks are busy with summer holiday day-trippers - and there are plenty of young people out and about searching for Loch Lomond’s most mystical residents.

Our photographer popped by the Loch Lomond Faerie Trail during a visit to Luss recently and found no shortage of youngsters on the hunt for the fantastical creatures.

The magical adventures have been enchanting faerie hunters of all ages for several years now - and this year’s summer trail is no different, with the woodland walk updated for the summer season.

And if you’ve already visited the trail this summer and are looking for something new, you won’t have too long to wait - the summer trail is open until mid-September, which is when work starts on a Hallowe’en version of the attraction.

Since the beginning of time, Scottish faeries have lived by the Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond. Happily inhabiting the forest and woodlands, living in harmony with nature, in their beautiful faerie houses.

On the western shore of Loch Lomond sits Luss, the prettiest village in Scotland. It is here that the faeries dwell and we invite you to join us on a magical adventure to explore their home! But please take care...when the Vikings invaded Scotland many centuries ago they brought with them some menacing trolls, who escaped and now roam through the hills and glens in the Scottish Highlands. Beware of these fearsome creatures.
