VIDEO: THE ENCHANTED FOREST

The Enchanted Forest is Scotland’s premier sound and light show. The award-winning event has been running since 2002 and this’s year’s programme opens to the public tomorrow night. Located in Faskally Forest, it’s expected to attract around 35,000 visitors, a new record for the month-long production which turns the woodland into a magical place. In a new feature this year, members of the public will be able to enter a photographic competition, with the winner’s image being shown at an exhibition at Perth Museum and Art Gallery. Last night, the media and invited guests were able to see a preview of the show – the Caledonian Mercury was there.

The event runs from Friday 4th October – Sunday 27th October.
