Record numbers at Glenbranter

Last night was quite possibly one of the wildest and wetest of the year yet the enthusiasm and the excitement of the record numbers of visitors to Glenbranter, poo pooing the driving rain and wild wind to celebrate Halloween, dressed as witches, wizards, skeletons, vampires to name but a few was a true testament to the commitment of all the teams that pulled together to create a magical night.  As ever the Forestry team were superb, their hard work and commitment is a real asset, and the spooky lights and sounds provided by Tents and Events created a chilling atmosphere. Thank you to every one that came and everyone that helped make it so splendid – We loved it too.
