The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea

DON'T GET CAUGHT BY THE GHOULIES!

Although it has been several years since Kinghorn was the location for a Spooky Walk, it will again become the venue, when the walks are resurrected on Friday 29th October, Saturday 30th October and Sunday 31st October.

The Spooky Walks will commence at 7pm from Kinghorn RNLI Boathouse, operating in 20 minute intervals and finishing around 9pm each evening. Monies raised from the Walks will go to RNLI funds.

Organiser Gordon Tulloch, a Deputy Launch Authority on the RNLI Lifeboat said: 'Several years ago I ran some Spooky Walks around Kinghorn and everyone seemed to enjoy them, now that I am back helping the RNLI, I thought that this would be a good time to resurrect them. They are a bit of fun, but will have a frightening theme and we have to make sure that anyone under 12 years of age is accompanied by an adult.'

He continued: 'Each tour will have a guide who will take the victims, er.. tourists around the town, and will include some important landmarks where spooky goings on have occurred in the past, and may occur during the tour, you just never know with these things...... What did happen to Murdo Shanks, the man who discovered King Alexander's corpse after he fell from his horse? You will find out on the night - along with several stories that will make your hair stand on end and may make you see Kinghorn in a different light.. We will be charging £2 per adult and £1 for kids of Primary school age, who are brave enough to attempt the walk. Everyone will enjoy themselves, but those of a vulnerable disposition or with heart complaints may be wise not to take part....'

Anyone who wishes to take part in a tour should pre book their place by calling Gordon on 891008 any evening after 6pm from Sunday 24th October onwards, - places will be limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
