Event description



For two nights only this December, Adventure Carrick will bring the Forest Of Pinclanty to life through the creation of an evening event which is suitable for all the family. Fascinating Forest has been purposefully designed as a self-guided walk along a set route which slowly weaves through the plantation of Pinclanty Forest from the trail head towards the main attractions within our very own "Forest Village". Along the trail, visitors will observe natural features which aim to fascinate and inpire the imagination and also immerse and connect people with the woodland environment. As well as observing the forest at night, the event is purposefully designed to be hands on with lots of things to do for familes and adults such as; making Fascinating Forest keyrings, pendents and christmas tree decorations using natural materials; experience "Pitch dark" in our natural shelters. Visitors can huddle in our geodesic willow dome and be immersed in a story or take part in a stargazing workshop and learn more about the constellations in the night sky under the guidance of a expert astronomer. There will also be firelighting sessions in the event tipi under the watchful eye of our event instructors whilst adults sample varieties of local liquors and enjoy a cup of warm soup in the "Pinclanty Tavern". No forest event would be complete though without toasting marshmallows around a fire.

We are also delighted to welcome "Cel Tic Voices" to perform at this years event. The Cel Tic Voices are an exciting group of local young people who develop Scottish culture through song, music and poetry. To learn more about the Cel Tic Voices and the excellent work they do in the local area please visit their facebook site: @Cel Tic Voices .


Based on the popular movie, this years childrens event theme is AVATAR. The event organisers will offer prizes for best dressed characters and we ask all children to decorate their HATS within an AVATAR theme to glow in the forest!! Young people will also be tasked with a hunt and find challenge...More information will be released nearer the event.

Fascinating Forest...It really is a winter woodland walk to remember!!
