The award-winning Enchanted Forest, Scotland’s premier outdoor light and sound show, returns to Highland Perthshire for an incredible 17th year this autumn.

Running from October 4 – November 4, Faskally Wood is set to once again be illuminated in dazzling light with 80,000 visitors expected to travel to Pitlochry for the hugely popular event. This year’s atmospheric show, Of The Wild, is firmly rooted in nature highlighting the natural wonders all around us and inspired by the hidden beauty of the wild forest after dark.

Running for four weeks and five weekends, mind-blowing light displays and interactive elements beautifully choregraphed with originally composed music recorded for this year’s event will be experienced by visitors of all ages and from all over the world.

As well as breathtaking visuals, state-of-the-art technologies and a magical music score, the creative team have teased some surprises in the forest. Ian Sim, Chairman of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, which runs The Enchanted Forest, said:

“This year’s Enchanted Forest, Of The Wild, is set to be an incredible and unique experience for our many visitors to Faskally Wood as the theme celebrates the wonders of nature. There will be some surprises in the woods, but you will have to wait and see what’s in store!”

Over 73,000 visitors attended last year’s sold-out show Oir an Uisge (Gaelic for ‘Edge of the Water’), which was a four per cent increase on the previous record-breaking year. Now in its 17th year, the event brings in an estimated £3 million to the local economy.
