SCARECROWS in all shapes and sizes have been springing up in Bothwell as the village prepares for its Scarecrow Festival.
The event, which will officially run from Friday until Sunday, will include a variety of events and activities for young and old alike.
Many of the area’s shops and community groups have already erected their own designs in preparation.
Organisers hope that as well as bringing some merriment to the village, the event will prove a valuable fundraiser for the Yorkhill Children’s Foundation.
