Tucked away in the Scottish countryside, Faskally Forest is a true escape from reality with its diverse wildlife, woodland trails and the tranquil Loch Dunmore. All that and it’s a fantastic spot for a picnic!

Get lost amongst the trees on one of their many walks, like the Forester’s Trail which takes you right up Dunmore Hill. You can then travel down to the Loch or stop off in the ‘'foresters' classroom' for an education in tree species, some of which are more than 200 years old!

The team host some really special events throughout the year, none more spectacular than the Enchanted Forest illuminations every Autumn. The wood is lit up with hundreds of glittering lights and colours like a fairy wonderland, and will no doubt have your little ones gasping with delight.
