The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland invited Alice and Elliot, aged six and four to an exclusive sneak preview of its upcoming Edinburgh Zoo Spooktacular illuminated trail.

Designed in partnership with NL Productions, the team behind The Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry, Edinburgh Zoo Spooktacular is the first ever evening Halloween event hosted by the wildlife conservation charity.

Visitors are invited to come along to the zoo on select evenings in October to listen out for a rustling amongst the trees and peeping eyes as they make their way through the park, meeting lots of spooky characters from witches and wizards to scarecrows and spiders.
