Hopes grow of a new swim event at Loch Lomond

Hopes are rising that a year-long spotlight on Scotland's coasts and waters will bring another big sporting event to Loch Lomond.

Bosses at Loch Lomond and Trossachs national park believe the 2020 initiative could bring an event similar to the highly popular Great Scottish Swim which has been cancelled this year.

The Great Run Company announced earlier this month that the swimming event, which attracted thousands of competitors and spectators every year, would not go ahead.
