Loch Lomond Food and Drink Festival, Balloch

UK travel information

Loch Lomond is a freshwater Scottish loch lying between the Scottish Central Lowlands and the Highlands. The Loch Lomond Food and Drink Festival is a celebration of the food and drink of Scotland, on the stunning shores of the Loch. It is now in its fourth year and proving to be hugely successful. Local producers from across Scotland come to sell their wares, from chefs to farmers, you will be able to sample game, fish, soups and bread, washing it down with fine Scotch ale and whisky.

As well as food and drink from Scotland, a large number of producers from Continental Europe come to sell their goods at the Continental market – from French cheese to Spanish Chorizo to Italian mushrooms. There are a number of food demonstrations by local chefs and personalities, and there are usually one or two television personalities taking part. Previous years have had demonstrations of baking and pasta making, with special sessions especially for kids. There are also craft demonstrations such as baking “Bannoch Bread” outdoors and making ceramics.

The Big Table is a new section of the festival, started in 2008. It offers 20 people the opportunity to sit around a big table and learn in detail about the food on offer. This includes tastings of luxury products such as chocolates, champagne and Loch Fyne Oysters. The Big Table operates on a first come first served basis so if there is something you’re desperate to try be sure to get there early.

There are over 1,000 free parking spaces at Loch Lomond, including disabled parking spaces, bike racks and coach areas. You can get there by train or by bus: regular trains run from Queen Street Station, Glasgow to Balloch Station, and the 204,205 and 215 buses run from Glasgow City Centre to Loch Lomond’s shores.
