Turnip or pumpkin for Hallowe’en?


While many of have nostalgic feelings about carving out a turnip, it’s incredibly difficult, and, it has to be said, not nearly as aesthetically pleasing as a pumpkins, Jack O Lanterns are so called from the legend of Stingy Jack, a drunkard who bargains with Satan, and is doomed to roam the Earth with only a hollowed out turnip to light his way.

If your choice is the pumpkin, then head to Arnprior in Stirlingshire. It’s a great day out for all the family.
