The Scottish National Party’s Mr Pete Wishart, Member of Parliament for Perth & North Perthshire will tonight (Thursday) formally open the 10th Anniversary Show at the Enchanted Forest, a Perthshire Big Tree Country event and Scotland’s premier sound and light show at Forestry Commission Scotland’s Faskally Wood near Pitlochry.
The event, which celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year, is hoping to beat all previous box office records, attracting almost 30,000 visitors in 2012.
Mr Wishart said:
“This is undoubtedly one of Scotland’s finest events. Not only does it provide an essential boost for the local economy, it opens up the beauty of this area’s stunning scenery to literally thousands of people, and showcases it in a brand new light. I can’t think of a better way to cheer up these October evenings than a trip to The Enchanted Forest.
“The number of visitors that The Enchanted Forest draws into Perthshire at a time that might otherwise be pretty quiet in terms of tourists is simply magical.
“I hope that those who come initially just for the show might be tempted to return after seeing just how beautiful Perthshire in autumn can be.”
