The Hong Lok Dragon is making an appearance at the festival
The humble mushroom has a starring role in a food and outdoors extravaganza.
The Trossachs Mushroom Festival, now in its tenth year, is bringing the spirit of Hong Kong to the area with Chinese-themed activities taking place at the heart of the event.
In attendance will be special guests from the Chinese Embassy and the Central Scotland Chinese Association.
The festival takes place from October 21 to 24 at venues across the Trossachs from Aberfoyle to Kinlochard.
Festival director John Epps said: "The Festival this year celebrates the Chinese Year of the Tiger and features Tai Chi to stir-fry and fungi forays to ceilidh banquets.

"We'll deliver fun for all with community benefit. Thousands of people will be using our local forests over the long weekend and I would encourage anyone who hasn't been to the Mushroom Festival to come along and join in the activities."
The Hong Lok Dragon and the Lion Dance Troupe will be performing at various venues throughout the long weekend.
Mycologist Liz Holden will be leading fungal forays into the forests to spot and identify mushrooms and toadstools.
Hill-walker Arthur Jones will be foraging for an autumnal banquet as he leads wild walks looking for things to cook and eat.
Arts and crafts, a Loch Ard raft race, cookery demonstrations, an antiques evaluation, jazz and ceilidh nights are some of the other activities taking place during the festival.
