During autumn, Faskally Wood in Perthshire is transformed into The Enchanted Forest, with a light and music show, which illuminates the trees with beautiful bright colours. The 2017 show name Oir an Uisge, Scots Gaelic for “Edge of the Water”, has taken its inspiration from the magnificent Loch Dunmore that’s at the heart of Faskally Wood.
Edinburgh Military Tattoo
Staged every year as part of Edinburgh’s world-famous summer festivals, the Edinburgh Tattoo is a unique and memorable celebration of music, dance and military pageantry. It takes place against the backdrop of the floodlit Edinburgh Castle where almost 1,000 musicians, pipers, drummers, singers and dancers perform on the Esplanade.
