One time stomping ground of Hollywood action hero Russell Crowe, the village – now a top tourist attraction, educational asset and film set run by the Clanranald Trust – had been planning a Halloween extravaganza but the new set of Scottish Government restrictions has effectively put an end to the event.

A Clanranald Trust spokesman said: “Unfortunately due to the latest updates from the Scottish Government we will have to once again close our gates to the public as live events cannot take place.

“It pains us to have to do this. We were so excited to bring back one of our favourite events of the year for Halloween but it’s sadly going to have to wait until 2021. Everyone should stay safe and we look forward to having them all back at Duncarron.”
