Hundreds of people gathered at Brodick beach on Friday night for the return of the annual fireworks display.

After it was cancelled last year due to the pandemic, one of the biggest gatherings in recent years watched a huge bonfire lit by Brodick firefighters, who also set off the dazzling display of fireworks sponsored, as always, by Brodick Improvements Committee.

A great firework display and barbecue was also held in Whiting Bay on Friday night held by the village improvements association at the putting green.

A spokeswoman said: ‘Many thanks to everyone who came along to the fireworks tonight and for your generous donations.

‘It was great to see the village coming together again after missing these types of events over the past year or so.’

However, the Northend Festival of Fire in Lochranza, planned for Saturday, had to be postponed due to the forecast for high winds and will now go ahead tonight (Friday), starting at 6.30pm, and will be followed by an evening dance in the village hall.
