How good to simply walk and enjoy these woods, so accessible from Pitlochry itself. Just to wander or to go a planned walk is simply wonderful.

This is an annual event with a different theme each year. This year is was called "Shimmer". A walk through the wood reveals brilliant colour changing lights and light movements. There are food outlets and toilets arranged around the area which are quite inconspicuous. Well worth a visit.

So we went to see the festival lights. £50 it cost for 2 adults and child. It was fantastically organised. Bus pick up from pitlochry was gr8. The walk was good. But think i expected more for the price.... We enjoyed the light over the water. And we just loved the dangling lights. That was magical. But the lights in... More

We had our first visit to this light show in the forest and we were totally delighted with this amazing light show in the Faskally forest, the effort made to bring this show to the public is just amazing and to have had a dry cool evening was the topping on the cake. The grandchildren thought it was a magical... More

Breathtaking, enchanting, magical, spectacular - choose any other superlatives and they would be apt. A wonderfully organised spectacle suitable for "children" of all ages. This wonderfully organised event has the capacity to turn any adult back into a mesmerised child once again. This was my first visit and most certainly won't be my last

This is my second trip to the Enchanted Forest. The first time I went I thought it was well organised. And it was! My recent second trip to the Enchanted Forest (Friday 14th October 2016) didnt start well. Driving up the A9 from Dundee, I was just coming up to the slip road for Pitlochry when a fault happened on... More

First time I have ever gone to the Enchanted Forest show. The lighting, the sound takes your breath away. Generally I'm quite cynical but this was totally unbelievable. Will certainly go back.

Just magically. Really enjoyed myself. Felt like a kid again with the open fire and marshmallows. Beautifully put together. Very professional. Ran so smoothly. Staff friendly and helpful. Amazing water and light affects. Will be back next year.
