Last year, organisers outlined their vision for A Christmas Miracle at Rough Castle.

However, the 1.4-kilometre-long route, near Tamfourhill, was unable to open due to the Scottish Government’s introduction of coronavirus protection levels.

It’s hoped to be a different story this year, though, as the organisers have unveiled how they’re going to “bring back some festive magic” for this December’s event.
