ALLOA Tower hosted a Victorian Christmas Fayre to get the whole family excited for Christmas.

The 14th century tower house was decorated with Christmas lights and stars, attracting over 460 people on Sunday, December 4.

Children could enjoy crafts sessions taking place and come away with their own handmade Christmas card or tree decoration.

Hushwing Rangers attended and set up a fire pit to roast marshmallows and chestnuts for the guests to enjoy alongside a glass of non-alcoholic mulled wine.

Alison Fraser, visitor serviced manager with National Trust for Scotland, told the Advertiser: “It was wonderful to see so many people coming and enjoying themselves.

“I wanted to give thanks to all volunteers involved in making the day happen as well as everyone who came along and helped raise around £600 for upkeep costs.

“With free access, many took advantage to see the attraction in what was a thank you to the community for support and proceeds from the day will go towards the upkeep of the tower.”

The Earl of Mar and Kellie helped kit out the tower and decorated a 20 foot tall Christmas tree.

Stallholders set up shop within the tower and were selling a fantastic range of festive gifts.
