Fire crews are investigating after a fire broke out at a hotel in Aberfoyle.

Twenty firefighters battled the blaze at the Clachan Hotel on Main Street on Sunday evening.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus searched the building, confirming that no-one was trapped inside, before the flames were extinguished with hose jets at about 21:00.

The Fire Investigation Unit is probing the cause of the fire, which broke out in the roof space of the hotel.

The alarm was raised at 19:49, with teams from Aberfoyle, Balfron, Callander and Falkirk fire stations mobilised to the village, which lies within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

Police Scotland were also called to the scene, and assisted in closing off Main Street to traffic during the incident.
