By Sean Murphy

A woodland near Loch Lomond is being transformed into a spooky Halloween trail this month, complete with a 'Haunted Pumpkin Patch'.

The Halloween Encounter at Luss Woods is a fun new event that's sure to be an ideal way to entertain the kids, with the chance to enjoy a one-of-a-kind theatrical scare event.

Join the Foresters if you dare and help them to escape from the ancient woodland in this "one-of-a-kind theatrical scare event".

The Loch Lomond Halloween Encounter will run from October 8 until the 31st, and is aimed at ages eight and above as it might be too scary for any younger children.

A spokesperson for Histrionic Productions who are running the event said: "Enchanted by day, haunted by night, expect unearthly forest dwellers on your way through the woods, terrified by tales of ancient trolls, furious faeries and expelled elves who dwell in the dark.

"A Loch Lomond Forester is lost in the woods. Our intrepid search reveals all may not be it seems, as the woodland comes alive after dark... it appears he may not be the only lost soul in the dark forest this Halloween...

"Confront unearthly forest dwellers as you forge deep into the ancient woods; face up to ghosts, spirts, trolls and the evil Cailleach (witch) in this shuddering Halloween Encounter."

Expect Interactive live performances, which run from 5:30pm to 8.30pm, epic light and sound effects, illusions and eerie scenes "perfect for a scare filled date night or a brave family" in the award-winning Scottish woodland.

Tickets are £15 per person and available to purchase now from www. halloweenencounter.co.uk.

Visitors will complete the trail at the haunted Pumpkin Patch where you can pick and purchase your own pumpkin and cosy up with hot drinks and refreshments in the indoor barn.

Are you brave enough to walk into the dark woods and help the foresters find their way back through the trail?
