All manner of scary characters and creatures were out and about in the Strath’s towns and villages on Tuesday evening.
The Halloween tradition of guising was maintained, with some very creative costumes on display, although the humble neep lantern seems to have been replaced with the easier to carve pumpkin!
At Comrie Primary, pupils went to school in fancy dress and at the end of the day held a spooky bake sale and enjoyed making lanterns.
In Crieff, guisers gathered in James Square for the busy Halloween party, organised by Crieff Community Council. Chair Susanna Murdoch, said:“It was a great evening with a fantastic effort made by the whole community.
“We are grateful to everyone that came out to celebrate Halloween with us.
“Thank you to Campbell’s Bakers, Gordon and Durward, judges Graham Donaldson and Jess Smith, DJ Steven McDougall, MESH, Highland Spring, Crieff Rugby Club, KWIC and everyone who came along to support the event.” Fancy dress results:
