View of Perth City

Today we’re continuing our series about the best happenings in Scotland this Autumn with a run down of what to do in Perthshire this fall. If you missed the first one about Edinburgh you can catch up here.

Perth has a special place in our hearts because it’s where TS Properties is based – Kinnoull St in case you were wondering. We love watching this city grow and evolve and we’re very excited for the autumn and winter seasons.

We’re trying not to mention Christmas yet…

So, the lowdown of what we’re going to be attending this Autumn which we think you might like:

The Enchanted Forest: This is one of our absolute favourite events to attend in the Autumn, especially with the family.A stunning sound and light show that transforms Faskally Wood using dazzling visuals and innovative design set against an original music score. With dazzling visuals and innovative design set against an original music score, including a new orchestral piece, explore the stunning autumn woodland setting of Faskally Wood near Pitlochry. Runs October to November.

The Big Street Party, Kinross: Kinross High Street has been going through regeneration works since the end of March this year. To celebrate the opening of the renovated High Street, and to re-promote the local shops, the High Street businesses, together with local community groups, are going to  join together to provide an afternoon of entertainment on the 3rd of October. Lots of entertainment to be had with the Red Hot Chilli Pipers headlining!

The Importance of Being Ernest: You can’t help but laugh at this classic play, and it’s definitely one to catch if you fancy a trip to to the Pitlochry area this fall.

Fruit and Fungi Festival: Take your kids out for the day this October and attend the Food and Fungi Festival at the Crannog on Lock Tay. Full Crannog tour of exhibition, Roundhouse talk, demonstrations of ancient crafts and technologies plus cooking, tastings, fruit pressings and demonstrations using seasonal foraged foods promise flavourful fun for all ages.

Nicola Benedetti in Recital: Come and see Nicola Benedetti, violin Alexei Grynyuk, piano. A thrilling programme to open Nicola Benedetti’s residency. She is joined by the brilliant Alexei Grynuk in a splendid programme. One of Beethoven’s finest pieces of chamber music is combined with the fiery romanticism of Brahms and the classical charm and poise of Mozart.

October Tayfest: We’re really looking forward to Perth’ Autumn Festival this year. You have to check out the programme – there are a lot of great educational events for kids of all ages.

Halloween Night at Scone Palace: Where better to celebrate Halloween than someplace with a lot of history? We’ll be taking our little ones and enjoying a spooky puppet show, a fancy dress competition, glitter tattoos, pottery painting, spider trail, creepy lucky dip and scary face painting. One we would highly recommend.

Samhain Festival: If you fancy something  bit more authentic for Halloween this year then why not check out the Samhain Festival at the Crannog Centre. Spook but fun, we promise! Come in ‘guise’ to celebrate Samhain, the Celtic Festival marking the end of the harvest and the beginning of the darker half of the year and the predecessor to Halloween.  Flaming torches, bonfires, storytelling and much more.

Look out for the next instalment in our series next week! In the meantime, for rates and dates in the Perthshire area, click here.
