Rothienorman was taken over by ghosts, ghouls and all manner of spooky creations as part of the village's Pumpkin Trail over Halloween weekend.

The event was organised by the village's pre-school as a fundraiser for the group.

Homes could enter to be put on the trail map and featured scary decorations and carved pumpkins.

There was also a chance for those following the trail to enter a competition for prizes.

Organiser Jenni Clark said: "This year we had to think outside the box to organise an event that could be done safely in the circumstances.

"It would have been a shame for the youngsters if there was not some sort of event to mark Halloween.

"There was a real buzz about the village over the weekend and we hope that everyone enjoyed seeing all the brilliant displays."

At the Rothienorman Hall a stall was set up with sweet treats and trail maps could be picked up.

Also at the hall pizzas were on offer from Haydn's Woodfired Pizza; hot drinks from Thanks a Latte; and toffee and chocolate apples from Laraine Thomson at the Rothie Inn.

There were prizes for the best decorated house, best decorated pumpkin and a draw for completed trail maps.

The event raised just over £400 for the pre-school.
