Earlier we blogged about several festivals which are taking place around Scotland as part of The Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight.

This weekend you can choose between festivals such as The Huntly Hairst, Dundee Flower and Food Festival or the Spirit of Speyside: Distilled.

If you are based in Glasgow, and would prefer something a little closer to home, we have a couple of suggestions that may tickle your fancy.

At the time of writing, there are still tickets left for this evening's session at the Prosecco and Gin Festival taking place in the Briggait.

Saturday's sessions have sold out although we always think it is worth checking for returns.

Over sixty gins and plenty of Prosecco will get the weekend off to a bubbly start.

Loch Lomond Food and Drink Festival

You may also want to swing by The Loch Lomond Food and Drink Festival.

Taking place over Saturday and Sunday at Loch Lomond Shores, the festival runs from 10am to 6pm each day. The main pic is from Loch Lomond Shores Facebook.

As well as some 80-odd food and drink producers, there will be live entertainment, whisky tastings, chef demonstrations plus kids’ activities.

The festival’s main sponsor, Loch Lomond Whiskies, will be offering free pre-booked tasting sessions across both days. Guest will be able to sample some of their finest whiskies and the newly launched Ben Lomond Gin.

Cooking enthusiasts can enjoy demonstrations from chefs such as Martin Sweeney from The Petersham in Richmond and Luca Conreno from La Lanterna restaurants in Glasgow.

There will also be cocktail making master classes and BBQ tasters.

Queen's Park Harvest Fayre

Alternatively, you could pay a visit to the Queen's Park Harvest Fayre in Glasgow's Southside.

Billed as 'an environmentally focused event promoting the use of green spaces and championing local produce', there will be stallholders and local growers; information about local organisations; family activities and workshops, live music plus the all important Orchard Pig Cider Bar.
