OUR SPOOKY POSTER'S FRIGHTENINGLY GOOD; Sunday Mail's great guide to ghosts and ghouls.

SCOTLAND The Best writer Pete Irvine today reveals the nation's spookiest place in our fantastic free poster.

The events supremo behind the best-selling guidebook says he was followed by a ghost at Crichope Linn near Thornhill.

The Dumfriesshire glen - and 19 other creepy spots - features in our glossy poster today.

The great Halloween giveaway details locations from Orkney to Dumfries which are sure to send shivers up your spine.

Pete said: "A number of years ago, while visiting Crichope Linn, I felt as if someone was following me. When I turned round, there was no one there. But it felt like someone was just over my shoulder watching me from the trees.

"It was the spookiest experience of my life."

But he says his favourite spooky place to visit is the Fairy Glen in Skye.

He said: "When you reach the glen, it feels like you are in another world. It is always spooky and makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up."

The other side of our superb poster lists the most infamous ghosts, witches and cannibals from Scotland's past, as well as monsters and scary creatures.

Included is Alexander 'Sawney' Bean, whose clan of cannibals ate more than 1000 people, the Ghostly Piper of Culzean Castle, whose spooky skirl can be heard on stormy nights, and Morag, The Monster of Loch Morar.
