Well, we had such a splendid time last year at the Enchanted Forest show in Faskally Wood, at Pitlochry, in Perthshire, that we went again for this year's edition. Really very good indeed - we were, admittedly, lucky with the weather, but it is a marvellous experience - lots of loud music and unbelievable lighting effects in a highland forest, all reflected in a lake. I can't quite remember what psychedelic actually means, but I think it is on the right lines. The festival runs for the month of October each year, and if you get an opportunity to go, I recommend it thoroughly - tickets normally go on sale around July time.
This year's theme was Shimmer (last year's was Flux).

|Foy the Younger throws himself into his highland break with typical zeal|
|And the show itself was breathtaking...|
|Pitlochry is rather an expensive place - especially during the Enchanted |
Forest season - there was some very competitive marketing in evidence
|All very confusing for a visitor who was, almost certainly, probably definitely the |
only retired Napoleonic French general in the Highlands this week
