Light-up a dark autumn night at the multi-award winning Enchanted Forest sound and light show at Faskally Wood. This outdoor experience is guaranteed to captivate children and adults alike as they discover Scotland’s only Enchanted Forest.

During this spectacular event, the woodland is transformed by dazzling visual effects that are choreographed to an original orchestral score. This year organisers expect a record breaking 45,000 visitors to travel to Faskally Wood to discover this year’s extravaganza entitled Elemental and, you could be one of them with LHH Scotland’s guide to this unique event.


When and Where?

Faskally Wood near Pitlochry in Perthshire is the backdrop for this magical event which runs from the 2nd October - 26th October. As there is no vehicle access to the woods during the Enchanted Forest, you will be transported to the event by the official shuttle bus that will pick you up from the New Fishers Hotel on Atholl Road.


What to Expect

The show’s producers have guaranteed that this year’s event will be especially creative and captivating. By using specially choreographed music and lighting effects, the forest will come alive as if by magic.

Once you arrive at Faskally Wood, there’s a set path which will take you through the woodland and around the forest’s breath-taking sights including gravity-defying acrobats, dancing fountains and so much more! You can even pause to enjoy a quick cup of tea and a snack at the on-site catering stand before you continue onwards on your journey through the Enchanted Forest. If you have young children with you, why not treat them to a quick rest stop at the storytelling tent?

Tickets for the Enchanted Forest vary depending on whether you decide to experience it at peak times during the week or at the weekend. You can find the full list of ticket prices and buy tickets online at the Enchanted Forest’s official website.
