October is the month of spooky goings on. The eerie Autumnal mist falls over Perthshire and we take a look at Perth like never before. Is it just us or does the breath taking Perth landscape look even more atmospheric and frightfully mysterious during the Fall. Step into a world of fantasy and adventure as we get a glimpse of some of the spooky supernatural sights of Perthshire in October.
If you go down in the woods today, You're sure of a big surprise. Have you caught a glimpse of the T-Rex roaming through Kinnoul woods? He can only be spotted on a really misty day.
Or perhaps your October walk will take you further into the depths of Perthshire and over to the chillingly spooky goings on at Scone Palace. We hear that the Spirits of Scone come out to play on the week in the lead up to Halloween.
Wherever your October adventure will lead make sure you are armed with your camera so you can capture the sights and relive the tales of adventure around the autumn campfire.
This week's gallery has been cherry-picked from the work of local photographers Fraser Hetherington and Leslie Mitchell.
Fraser Hetherington is an amateur photographer who enjoys taking mainly landscape photos, both in Perthshire and the surrounding areas. Fraser has been awarded the prestigious “ Historic Scotland Photograph” award, winning twice in the last 4 years. His work captures Scotland’s historic sites and his often creates different atmospheres with lighting at night, or even creating a new image within Photo editing software and using drones to find a different angle on the everyday world.

Leslie Mitchell has rekindled his love of photography since retiring. Inspired by his son Tom Mitchell who is a fashion photographer in London, he was encouraged to get back out there and re discover his talents. Tom previously worked with Film cameras and never liked digital photography until his son gave him his Canon 5D which has spurred on new photography based outdoor adventures.
