Halloween is here and families across Scotland have been sharing their ‘spooky snaps’.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Scottish Government has explicitly advised against trick or treating – or guising – as it “brings an additional and avoidable risk of spreading the virus”.

“Going door to door, passing sweets, touching items others have touched – all of that gives Covid the opportunity to spread,” said First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

However, ‘little horrors’ across the country have not let that ruin their fun and have been dressing up in celebration.

From witches and skeletons to killer clowns and gargoyles, here’s a selection of some of our favourite costumes.
