Ian Sim, chairman of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, which operates the event, said:
“It’s phenomenal to see how much The Enchanted Forest event has grown in its 16 years. It began as a three-night event with 1500 visitors.

“Today it’s one of Scotland’s, and the U.K.’s, must-see Autumn happenings.

“Thanks must go to the brilliant creative time and producers of the show, as well as our very talented operations team, all of whom make Faskally Wood come alive every October to be transformed into an enchanted forest.”
