A masterpiece of lighting in the outdoors â€“ this popular multi-award winning show returns to fire your imagination.
It’s a great family evening, as the nights draw in and the forest becomes alive with sounds and scenes. There’s story-telling, mulled wine and food on offer too. Prices vary, but a peak family ticket costs Â£55 (two adults, two children). See the website for more information.

Billed as one of the first ever closed road cycle races in Scotland, the Etape Caledonia still rates as one of the best after ten years. 81 miles of premium cycling amongst some of Perthshire’s most spectacular scenery. Choose from a regular, charity or premium entry â€“ you need to be fit and healthy to take part. But be quick! This event sells out quickly.
Part of the Highland Perthshire Cycling Festival, this popular event kicks off in Dunkeld, and takes in some great off-road tracks with some breathtaking scenery thrown in.

Climbers can be funny too â€“ as Andy Kirkpatrick shows at this series of talks across Scotland. An author, stuntman and the UK’s only ‘stand-up’ climber, Andy will engage and entertain audiences with his tales from around the world.
This week-long family festival is in the heart of PerthshireÂ when the trees are at their autumn best. There’s a lot on offer, so check the website, but highlights include a beaver safari, ghost walks, a red deer safari and abseiling down Weem Rock.
Perfect for hillwalkers with a bit of experience under their belt, the events over the three days range from moderate to very strenuous. While the first day is already fully booked, last time we checked there were still four events open for walkers to enjoy. These were the Cateran Trail (Spittal of Glenshee to Kirkmichael), Inverey to Glen Shee, the Rob Roy Way and Killiecrankie to Moulin (taking in a Corbett).

A fun, entry-level festival devoted to bikes and inspiring people to get into cycling. There will be all sorts of things to keep the family occupied, like demonstrations from The Clan â€“ a stunt bike team, who are always good value. There’s the obligatory airbag for firing yourself into, a pump track challenge and various other competitions. There will be bikes for sale, demo bikes to try and Dr Bike will be on hand to answer any techy questions. Oh, and did we mention it’s free!?
