HALLOWE’EN never fails to bring out the best wacky costumes and most outrageous outfits and this year was no different across Helensburgh and Lomond.

Guisers gathered to spook their friends and neighbours and claim a tasty reward in the form of enough sweets to last until supplies can be restocked at Christmas time.

Children - some as young as four weeks old - and adults joined in the fun by posing as their favourite movie characters or spooky villains, while there was a fair share of cute get-ups alongside the thrillingly creepy costumes.

Lucy Wright’s home in Colgrain was again transformed into a house of horror, including an electric chair, a coffin, an outdoor maze, smoke machine, strobe lights and plenty of moving objects to make visitors jump out their skins.

The house in Drumfork Road has become a popular attraction on Hallowe’en with over 450 sweets handed out this year and more than £140 raised for the display and Colgrain Primary’s parent teacher council.

Lucy said: “We made a few people cry, many people scream, there was lots of laughter and the display generally entertained the masses.

“We made £142.93 in donations, not as much as last year but still a great turn out.

“We estimate we have 300 children and adults through the door each getting to play, have a scare and a sweet.

“We started doing it three or four years ago, getting bigger each year.

“We now have children come from Rhu, Garelochhead and all over Helensburgh visit us.

“It takes about a week to set up doing three to four hours a day.”
