If you’re looking to find the best spots to get stuck into spooky season, we know just the person.
Edinburgh-based blogger Claire Ferguson is a pro when it comes to all things pumpkins and petrifying.
We asked her for her top three spots to head to this Halloween whether you are looking to snap some ghostly photos or swap the tricks for treats.
The Little Parlour
The Little Parlour in South Queensferry is the only place to be for seasonal ice creams.
Spooky season is here so I highly recommend you add this to your must-do lists. Scot and Lucy are wonderful and create awesome spooky biscuits too just in case ice cream isn’t your thing (boo).
Try my favourite Black Vanilla or Pumpkin Spice and don’t forget your toppings.
House of the Binns
Ghost trends are everywhere and have been for years now so let’s head to one of the most haunted spots in Scotland and get spooky.
Grab your white sheet (a flat bed sheet will do, don’t spend a fortune on this, there’s no need) and head out for a ghostly photoshoot.
You’re going to want to take yourself to House of the Binns in West Lothian. It is said to be haunted by Bluidy Tam, a haunting tale indeed.
Snap away within the trees or in front of the castle like we did here. We took a picnic and had a right good laugh on the grounds.
Calling all pumpkin patch lovers. Ok ok, they get more and more popular every year and it can be hard to choose BUT I do love the ones that are wholesome, family run and don’t have that ‘commercial’ feel.
Killduff Farm in North Berwick is by far my favourite. Lucy and her gang are just a family of pure kindness and creativity which really shows on their patch. I recommend a visit here over any other in Scotland. Lucy is a massive supporter of Scottish small businesses (which I adore) and has the most beautiful honesty shed offering lots of treats throughout the year.
