The Scarecrow Trail is now available!

This year we are running this event in partnership with Balerno Children’s Gala. The Gala Court will be judging the Group entries and we will as always be judging the individual entries by public vote. Access the map using the above link or obtain a paper copy from Balerno Hardware and take yourself a walk around the village on Saturday afternoon or Sunday.

Photos of all the individual entries will be put on the Balerno Farmers Market Facebook page and here on the website ( on Monday 31st May until 5pm on Saturday 5th June.

You can vote for your favourite by ‘liking’ the appropriate photo on Facebook or by emailing The winning individual scarecrow and runners up will be announced at the Farmers Market on Saturday 12th June at 12.30pm.

Please note that not all of the scarecrows have been entered into the individual competition – some have only entered as a group, others have only entered as individuals. Groups are shown as lines on the map showing which streets are taking part.
