The National Trust for Scotland’s popular ‘Creepy Crawl’ event, in partnership with oats company Stoats, arrives at Greenbank Gardens and Pollok House later this month.

Running over Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 October, families can now take part in the frightening fun and put on their bravest faces as they follow the spooky trails, solve puzzles and try out the terrifying tasks including apple dooking, grave grabbing, and the enormous neep heap, before ‘guising’ to claim a delicious prize from Stoats.

Clare Willis, marketing manager at the National Trust for Scotland, said: “We have some traditional, and not-so-traditional, spooky Halloween challenges for them to try out, so it’s set to be a fang-tastic weekend.

“And they get to enjoy it all while exploring our beautiful heritage – and some of the most haunted places in Scotland!”

Tony Stone, MD of Stoats, added: “We’re delighted to be partnering up with the National Trust for Scotland to create a weekend of family fun this Halloween at the Stoats Creepy Crawl.

“After completing the spine-chilling challenges at the spooky sites, the guisers will be in for a real treat as they get their little hands on our new Stoaters Snack Bars.”

The Stoats Creepy Crawl takes place on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 (times vary please check individual properties).

Child tickets (three years+) cost £4 and adults go free (usual property entry fees apply to non-members).

Children are encouraged to come along in fancy dress, with prizes for the best costumes including Stoats goody bags and day passes for the National Trust for Scotland.
