The Enchanted Forest event takes place every Autumn at Faskally Woods about 3 miles from Kinnaird. It is a must see event for locals and visitors to the area.
The experience begins in the centre of Pitlochry as you journey to the woods. As Perthshire is know as Big Tree Country the tree filled wood forest at Loch Dunmore makes the perfect backdrop for the event. Trees are lit up with an array of colours and light effects (a different theme each year) with music and pop up points of interest along the tree lined trail.
The wood is full of a variety of different trees - oak trees, silver birch, majestic Scots pine trees, Douglas fir trees, Ash, Sycamore, the ancient Yew tree, Horse Chestnut trees and many more. Take a stroll through the forest and you will see the many trees in a totally different light!
The Hermitage at Dunkeld (just 12 miles south of Pitlochry) is home to some of the tallest trees in the UK so go and enjoy an autumn walk through the many species of trees, gather some pine cones and enjoy the autumn woodland walks at their best.
Pitlochry and ighland Perthshire always looks magical at this time of year with the darker nights, twinkling lights, starry skies and autumn colours.
Lodges are beautifully set out and to sit in the hot tub in the peace and quiet overlooking rolling fields and mountains is idyllic. Tripadvisor 2
My husband and I spent new year there. Stayed three days but could easily have stayed longer! We booked the upgrade but Im sure all lodges would have been of same quality. Absolutely beautiful inside with all the tools for cooking you could need. Finished to an extremely high standard. Log fire really added that special touch as the bells came in, looking out windows at all the fireworks taking place in and around Pitlochry! The hot tub was just magical sitting under the stars. About a 10 - 15minute walk away is the Moullin Inn which is very popular, you can just get a drink or nice meal. Pitlochry itself is about half hour walk. Great base if you fancy doing bit walking or some touring. Would definitely reccommend the lodges and hope to return some day! Room Tip: Beatiful views from all lodges!
