Scarecrow Trail

The Scarecrows are here! Follow the trail to find them all and vote on our Facebook Page or at The Mill Cafe or Balerno Hardware.

What is it?

Balerno’s Scarecrow competition is a fantastic chance to get creative! In previous years, we have had everything from The Incredible Hulk to cat burglars and sunbathing scarecrows. All you have to do is pay your £5 entry and put your scarecrow somewhere it can be seen from the road by the 3rd June!

Important information

Entries:  Entries cost £5 and include a bag of straw for your scarecrow. Come along to the Balerno Village Trust stall at Balerno Farmers’ Market on 12 May (9am-1pm) or Balerno Gala Day on 26 May. If you can’t make those email

Deadline: the deadline for building your scarecrow is Sunday 3rd June – we will be photographing them on the 4th of June
