Looking for a great way to cheer up this October? For me, Perthshire is THE place to go and itâ€™s very simple why â€“ the Enchanted Forest, an internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning sound and light event is back!
If you havenâ€™t experience it yet, head to Faskally Woods and Loch Dunsmore, located just outside Pitlochry, between 4 – 27 October to see this traditional son et lumiere show set against an atmospheric forest backdrop to the accompaniment of an original music score.
This yearâ€™s theme is entitled Absorb and you can expect incredible visuals featuring innovative designs of spheres and round shapes.
Follow a number of dimly lit paths created by Scottish lighting designers Kate Bonney and Simon Hayes, all illuminated with different coloured orbs to show you the way, take in a sweeping light show to the sound of a stirring orchestral score by RJ McConnell in collaboration with composer Jon Beales and experience the Enchanted Forestâ€™s WOW factor.
