The Highland Perthshire Community Interest Company

 
 
The Highland Perthshire Community Interest Company is a not for profit community organisation that seeks to develop and maintain the economic benefits of major events in Highland Perthshire.
 
Run by local people, for local people, the CIC, as they are locally known, manages and delivers The Enchanted Forest which attracts over 20,000 visitors every year.
 
The Highland Perthshire Autumn Festival is a marketing tool of the Highland Perthshire Community Interest Company.
 
Their main events include:
 
The Enchanted Forest Experience
 
Perthshire Big Tree Country's award winning The Enchanted Forest sound and light show is a feast for your senses. The 2011 event takes place in The Explorers Woodland Garden in Pitlochry and offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the outdoors, at night and with spectacular imagery.
 
The Enchanted Forest event is designed to be as long as you want it to be. Typically, walking at a moderate pace and taking in all the shows and features, an average person will take between 45-60 minutes to go around the event once. Most people who attend will go around the event twice to ensure they've seen all the features fully. 
 
Wild Connections
 
Wild Connections events fall into three main streams:
 
Evolving: Interested in learning about wildlife? Then this is the best place to start. Choose from a selection of events which include wildlife photography masterclasses and informal expert talks on red deer, red squirrels and wildlife protection. 
 
Exploring: Get into the wild and learn about Perthshire Big Tree Country's stunning creatures and habitats first hand. Events include Spotlight Safaris and even the opportunity the climb Schiehallion with a knowledgeable guide.
 
Gathering: If you like big events and lots of exciting activities for all the family, come to one of our gatherings! We've got a crann-apple cider festival as well as the opportunity to play with food, fire and fungi!
 
The 2011 festival takes place from Saturday 8th October - Sunday 16th October 2011 which is right at the beginning of this year's Enchanted Forest.
 
Whisky Galore!
 
Back by popular demand, Whisky Galore – A Musical! promises to be the perfect Autumn treat. Book now to secure your seat!
 
Rally of Scotland
 
Running on a Friday - Sunday format again, and one week earlier than in 2010, this year's event will be decided by three days of competitive driving over timed Special Stages on closed Forestry Commission Scotland gravel roads in Stirling and Perth and Kinross. The route will also feature a ceremonial start, central service park and ceremonial finish.
 
The RACMSA Rally of Scotland is supported by EventScotland, the national events agency, together with Stirling and Perth and Kinross Councils. The route traditionally takes in some of Scotland's most iconic and historic landmarks across two of Scotland's most picturesque constituencies: Stirling and Perth and Kinross.
