Arts and crafts are set for several outings in the area over the coming weeks.

Helensburgh and Lomond Artisans Association (HLAA) are holding two Summer Fairs on July 13 and 27, they have announced.

As well as Hermitage Park, the group will visit Luss for the first time.

Organisers recently marked their 10th year together with a birthday fair on June 8 at The Bridge.

Next week, on July 13, the Park Pavilion in Hermitage Park will host a fair between 11am and 2pm.

Then on July 27, they will hold their first ever craft fair at the Village Hall in Luss.

Organisers said: "We're excited to bring our crafters to the beautiful village of Luss, on the shores of Loch Lomond, so that a new audience can experience an HLAA craft fair.
