Elves are preparing to take over Moray’s historic Brodie Castle and transform it into an Elf Academy for the festive season.
The elves are recruiting local families to join the Elf Academy at the castle to help them with their annual task of making Christmas Day magical.
Visitors can apply to be part of the special elf training and fun festive experience that’s open to all ages from Saturday, December 7 until December 22.
Part of the important training is learning about ‘elf and safety’ and what the role of being an elf entails. Once the children complete their courses, they will graduate with a special certificate.
All the recruits who sign up for the elf training will be taken on a tour of the National Trust for Scotland’s Morayshire castle, which will be visited by Mr and Mrs Claus.
Families can also visit the Christmas market featuring gifts and craftworks by local artists before rounding off their full day of festive fun by taking photos by Santa’s sleigh.
Brodie Castle operations manager James Dean said: “The team here at Brodie Castle will be doing all it can to make this the most magical Christmas experience possible.
“For those enrolling in the Elf Academy, we are sure it will be full of festive fun memories which you will treasure forever.”
