Aside from the plentiful sweeties, one of the best parts of Halloween is going out and buying a pumpkin to carve up with the kids, family or friends.
But this year, why not add more pumpkin fun into the mix and go pick your own?
A great day out for all the family, here’s our pick of great Scottish patches for plentiful pumpkin picking this October:
Known as Scotland’s premier pumpkin patch, Arnprior Farm just outside Stirling are opening up their patch to the public this weekend.
They have over 7000 pumpkins in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes ripe for picking, carving or turning into a hearty pie or soup.
In 2017 more than 6000 people visited the farm, and the 2018 experience is set to be even bigger than last year due to the hot dry summer, which has made way for a pumpkin boom.
Craigie’s Farm has a whole host of different pumpkins on offer, including a blue variety.
As well as pumpkins, there’s an array of other autumnal fruits for visitors to pick themselves.
The farm also has a canine café for pooches and opportunities to visit animals from pygmy goats to ponies.
Like Craigie’s Farm, Cairnie Fruit Farm has a plethora of fruits available for picking as well as pumpkins.
Cairnie is also known for its mega maze, which grows up to eight feet tall.
