Spooky surprises in store as Spirits of Scone returns this Hallowe’en

Tickets for the terrifying Hallowe’en event, Spirits of Scone, are due to go on sale to the public this Friday, 26 August at 10am. The 2021 event, which sees creatures of the dark haunt the grounds of Scone Palace, was a sold-out success, with over 8000 attending and even more are expected to flock to Perthshire this year for a fright night experience to remember.

Opening to the public on 21 October and running until 31 October, the outdoor event will take visitors on a one-hour fright-fest of adventure and mayhem through the historic grounds of the five-star visitor attraction, promising more scares than ever before.

The historic grounds of Scone Palace will be transformed once again into a truly terrifying playground of menacing ghouls and horror film freaks, brought to life by Create Events. In the dark, visitors will take a route through the ancient gardens, passing through areas such as the Ghostly Woods and Zombie Graveyard meeting frightful characters along the way cannibals and witches.

Organisers have warned visitors to ‘enter only if you dare’, where they will be met with truly horrifying characters lurking in the grounds, played by a group of ‘jump scare’ actors from Create Events. Due to the fear factor, they have advised that the event is not suitable for young children under eight or those of a nervous disposition.

Organisers are looking forward to welcoming visitors into the Palace grounds for what is set to be their scariest Halloween event yet.

Heather McArthur, Head of Events at Scone Palace, said:

“We’re excited to be bringing one of our most popular events back again this year, to haunt the grounds of our historic Palace, and give visitors a fright night experience to remember as we inject the horror back into Hallowe’en. Spirits of Scone is certainly not for the faint-hearted! The grounds here at Scone Palace create the perfect scary atmosphere, with lots of dark corners, gravestones and wooded areas for ghouls and ghosts to hide in. This year is set to be our best event yet, with lots of spooky surprises in store for those who are brave enough to enter!”
