Enchanted Forest

Lights, music… action! This October the Perthshire forest will wait until evening falls to come alive.

Think Avatar’s world of Pandora meets Disney’s Fantasia, but in a real life forest setting.

You might think an outdoor sound and light show just as we head in to the Scottish winter is totally crazy, and let’s face it, you’d probably be right. But just wait till you see the transformation of Faskally Wood, and the weather will be the last thing on your mind.

The forest is worth seeing in the daylight for it’s autumnal tones and scenery alone. But wait for darkness, whack on some innovative light installations, atmospheric music and visuals, and you’re looking at something pretty special.

Last year the show sold out of it’s 62,000 tickets (hence the reason for this timely blog post) so make sure to book in quick for the 15th annual show.

This year’s show – ‘Shimmer’ is The Enchanted Forest’s most ambitious display to date.

The organisers like to keep details of the show a surprise, but what we do know is that this year’s show will follow the theme of an enchanted wood and there are promises of some larger than life characters.

The light displays are undoubtedly the focal point of the show, but there are always little touches like dancing fountains and acrobats to really illuminate the surrounding nature.

There’s so much detail to take in that you’ll have to take a few trips around the forest to take it all in. With every walk around you’ll notice something new. And don’t be put off if it rains, the drops only add to the enchanted forest, making the lights glisten and sparkle even more.
