Enchanted Forest:  Pitlochry light show cancelled for second night as severe rainfall prompts safety fears Enchanted Forest

The Enchanted Forest has been cancelled for the second night in a row as severe rainfall has prompted safety fears.

Organisers said they have been forced to pull Sunday’s light show, at Faskally Wood near Pitlochry in Perthshire, due to site conditions, a number of transport incidents and staffing issues.

They said it would ‘no longer be safe’ to proceed with the event.

It follows the cancellation of Saturday’s show after torrential rain hit parts of Scotland, with an amber alert extended for parts of north and eastern Scotland until 2pm on Sunday.

A statement read: “We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this decision but we are sure you will understand that the safety of our staff and visitors is of the utmost importance.

“All visitors booked to attend tonight will receive communication direct from SEE Tickets on Monday October 9 to enable you to exchange your tickets to an available remaining date or, if no dates are suitable, request a refund.”

The event, founded in 2002, returned after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic in 2022.
