Faskally Wood, just outside Pitlochry, plays host to a unique and magical event every year. The wood is turned into a stunning enchanted forest that attracts thousands of visitors every year. If you have the chance, you should see it for yourself.
The enchanted forest is a magical experience. It is an outdoor sound and light show. Your night starts in Pitlochry, from there you are bussed out to the forest. As you wander through the paths in the forest, you are treated to the spectacular choreographed show. You can wander through the trail more than once so you can have a chance to see anything you may have missed and at a pace that suits you.
The shows start as soon as night falls, and the last bus leaves the woods at around 10:45. The shows are only on for a short part of the year. Usually in October and November, but you should check the website for this year's dates.
You will need to get a ticket to see the show. Most nights sell out. Tickets go on sale in July, but you can sign up for a ticket alert so that you get an email as soon as they are on sale. Children under 3 go free, and as long as you can fold up your buggy, you can bring it on the bus. Children's tickets cost £11, over 15's cost £21. It really is a bargain for this magical and unique experience.
If you are going to be in the area during the show dates, it really is a must-see. We guarantee you won't regret it.
The event is not only a great show it is also committed to doing good in the community. Every year the Enchanted Forest team select three local charities. A portion of the proceeds goes to these charities to support their good works.
