AN ALTERNATIVE take on the the traditional scarecrow has been causing a stir in Arnprior, rural West Stirlingshire. 

Commuting cars that pass Steven Burgess Furniture & Interiors Showroom have been treated to a scarecrow with a topical twist for the past few days. 

Steven Burgess, managing director of the business, said: “Every year one of our customers donates a stash of lovely big pumpkins to the business.

"We like to join in the fun and make a pumpkin scarecrow to entertain our clients and commuters at our Showroom entrance.

"This year we decided on a more topical theme and it certainly has had a great reaction. It’s a take on Donald Trump - all in the cause of entertainment.”

He added: “As you can see it is just a bit of fun and as we get into the spirit of Halloween.

"I hope that no one is offended. The cars have been tooting with delight and the Scarecrow has given drivers something to smile about on their daily commute."
