What To Do In The Enchanted Forest?
The Enchanted Forest is a truly magical, exploratory, wintery experience – and a perfect event to enjoy when wrapped up in your scarf, mittens and coat! In the mysteriously dark Scottish evenings, the forests come alive for you to explore and enjoy at your own pace.
There are water shows, light-shows, fire shows, sound and even storytelling yurts to sit and hear some magical Scottish fairy tales.
As you walk through the Enchanted Forest, you will also experience some of Scotland’s best ariel artists, who will be performing in the wooded canopies above your head. This year’s theme is “Flux” which gets its inspiration from “waves of energy” that will be showcased at this year’s event.
Is There Food & Drink In The Enchanted Forest?
