HEATHROW has been named as the headline sponsor of this year’s Loch Ness Knit Fest.

With 75.7 million travellers passing through the London airport annually, it provides the festival with a platform to advertise its programme, and also the Inverness area, to a global audience.

Loch Ness Knit Fest will run from October 13-15, with venues and activities soon to be announced.

Heathrow has also sponsored a team of London-based knitters who have been inspired to knit a mural of Inverness Castle.

It will be displayed at the popular festival.
