About Light up the Forest

Join us for our annual popular Light up the Forest event where we’ll be celebrating the Forest at Night!

Follow the torch lit path around the Waterfall Trail and discover what comes to life whilst you are all tucked up in your beds asleep. Enjoy a bbq on the terrace, crafts in the Lodge and night-time tales by the campfire down by the Waterfall.

Booking is essential as this is a popular event and spaces are limited. Please phone the Cowal and Trossachs District Office on 0300 0676600 weekdays between 8.30am-4.30pm to book and pay for your tickets or contact the Lodge on thelodge@forestry.gsi.gov.uk for more information.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Light up the Forest are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
