Next week there will be spooky happenings and bumps in the night at a Deeside historical site.

A set of eerie evenings at Crathes Castle, garden and estate has been planned.

Visitors will have the chance to explore the dark, haunted rooms of Crathes Castle or brave the grisly castle grounds.

On 24 - 31 October, there will be the opportunity to discover the hidden and haunted history with Crathes Ghost Tours.

Taking a guide around the shadowy corners of the castle, you’ll hear some ghastly, ghoulish stories.

Keep your eyes peeled for the fabled Green Lady who haunts the castle corridors.

On 27 October, visitors are encouraged to join the ‘Witchy Walk’ and Nigel the Ninja Witch Catcher in his journey to hunt down all of the wicked witches and get rid of them all.

Booking is strongly advised for both these events – call 0844 493 2166.

Fairytale-like turrets, gargoyles of fantastic design and the ancient Horn of Leys given in 1323 by Robert the Bruce are just a few of the features of this historic castle. Crathes is a great location for a Hallowe’en scare with its quirky architecture, spooky stories and ghost sightings. It is also one of the best places in Scotland to look for bats.
