    With Scotland’s finest stately home providing the backdrop for the display the evening will feature plenty of family entertainment. With prizes for the best Halloween costumes and a variety of fairground rides there’s plenty to keep the little ones entertained and plenty of hot food for sale to feed the family.

    Dress appropriately for the weather and make sure you are warm and dry. Parking and some activities are on grass and therefore sturdy footwear is advised.
