Pitlochry's Enchanted Forest

Faskally Woods in Pitlochry hosts the annual Enchanted Forest event every October, and it is a spectacular day out for both locals and tourists to the area. The Pitlochry Enchanted Forest is an award-winning lighting show, staged in the stunning Autumn woodlands in Perthshire.

Visitors to the event can expect to see gripping visual displays and innovative designs in a unique and magical environment in the Scottish countryside. The awe-inspiring visuals are accompanied by a stirring, original music score throughout the event, creating a fully immersive experience in the woods.

Award-Winning Visual Effects

This incredible event is renowned as Scotland’s premier sound and light show. It offers an out of this world experience to every single visitor. The Pitlochry Enchanted Festival has been praised with several prestigious awards including Best Outdoor Festival at Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards 2017, and Best Cultural Event at the UK Event Awards 2016.

The roaring success of the event is all thanks to the talented creative team, who every year manage to wow their visitors by transforming the blank canvas of Faskally Woods into an illuminating sound and light show. The visuals of the show are inspired by the natural beauty of Perthshire and the Highlands, and the aim is to reveal the true wonders of the natural world by night.

Visiting the Pitlochry Enchanted Forest

This event is such a hit for both locals and tourists, and tickets to the Pitlochry Enchanted Forest sell out well in advance. In 2019, the show will open on the 3rd October and run until the 3rd November, offering a full month of jaw-dropping shows and experiences.

Currently, tickets are £20 for adults and £10 for children 15 and under, and children under three can enter for free, although they must still have a ticket for the show. These prices are likely to change over time as demand increases, so the earlier in advance you can book then the better.

Attending the Pitlochry Enchanted Forest is a magical experience, and you will first meet at Fishers Hotel in the centre of Pitlochry. From here all visitors will be transported by bus to Faskally Woods, which all adds to the mystic experience of the event.
