Loch Lomond TV was established by professionally trained TV presenter Jim Smart.


Jim has been in the entertainment business for 30 years, initially with his hypnotist and live music shows, but progressively hosting live variety showcase and corporate events. He trained at the prestigious Presenter Studio London as a TV presenter and has featured on various TV shows including BBC Scotland's 'Viva Variety' documentary about the entertainment business in 2014, made the grand final of BBC1's prime time entertainment show 'Pitch Battle' in 2017, and was also filmed for special political features on both STV News and BBC Newsnight in 2014.

Jim Smart has hosted live outdoor events for years, including the annual Helensburgh Winter Festival and West Dunbartonshire's Christmas Lights Switch On, as well as organising regular events at the Denny Civic Theatre in Dumbarton. He has extensive experience hosting various entertainment features including quiz shows, interviews, voice overs, corporate videos and advertisements, as well as developing fun and unique entertainment concepts.


Loch Lomond TV was launched as a FREE TO VIEW community TV channel from the Loch Lomond area, including West Dunbartonshire and the villages surrounding Loch Lomond, broadcasting locally produced content around the globe.  Our aim is to promote the culture of the local area, the businesses and its people, and to provide a platform for established and up and coming talent.  We broadcast unique entertainment concepts including original music from live bands and artists, light entertainment, chat and news stories.


As well as providing locally produced TV content, we also aim to revitalise the local area, including the re-establishment of local cinema, providing affordable blockbuster films and special screenings to the people of West Dunbartonshire. 


Loch Lomond TV (C.I.C.) was established to benefit:

- local people with an interest in television and the arts, providing them with a platform to develop, enhance and promote their skills/talents in view of securing professional work in television, theatre and live entertainment.


- the people of West Dunbartonshire and the Loch Lomond catchment area, providing free to view online, locally produced television content and through the re-establishment of local cinema

- the local economy and jobs, through worldwide promotion of the Loch Lomond area, local culture, amenities, services and business to help boost tourism, generating more opportunities for local people.


We are always looking for volunteers and contributors for our programming including presenters, camera operators, sound and lighting engineers, make up artists, script writers, producers, bands and singers with original material and variety acts. No experience necessary, as the company endeavours to provide exciting opportunities and invaluable experience to anyone seeking a career in television, the arts and entertainment. You may even have a programme idea or concept you would love us to broadcast! Please get in touch via our contact page


The on-going success of the station relies on support from individuals and businesses. Programmes produced by Loch Lomond TV will always be free to view, however financial assistance is always greatly appreciated.
