As you may know, last Saturday I competed in the World Porridge Making Championships in Carrbridge, Scotland, and was fortunate enough to share the winning title for the Specialty Award for my Sticky Toffee Porridge.
I was (and still am) over the moon, but the excitement and happiness of the day wasn’t over once we left Carrbridge because I had tickets to The Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry. I almost stayed for the ceilidh (a party with Scottish dancing and drinking) in Carrbridge, but now I am glad that I did not miss The Enchanted Forest because I doubt I will ever experience something this unique ever again, unless I return to Pitlochry in October in future, which I just may do!
My mother and I waited in line for a bus to take us from the main street in Pitlochry for a short ride to The Enchanted Forest, and I honestly will say that what I had imagined was completely surpassed by what I experienced when walking through the forest. The photos you see here cannot do justice to the event: the sights and sounds are amplified in person and I hope I can convince everyone reading this that if you are lucky enough to live within driving distance, or will be in Scotland between now and October 26th, that you will go to experience The Enchanted Forest for yourself.
Last year, over 40,000 visitors attended the award-winning outdoor event and each year features a new theme, this year’s being “elemental”. Besides a light and music show, The Enchanted Forest features aerial artists from All or Nothing, which added a wonderful human element to the entertaining evening.
