The Big Tree Country leaflet (www.perthshirebigtreecountry.co.uk), produced by the Forestry Commission, Perth and Kinross Council, Scottish Enterprise Tayside and the Perthshire Tourist Board, lists events until the end of November.
Booking is essential for The Enchanted Forest, a light-and-sound spectacular starting today at the Hermitage, until November 9. Perth Theatre box office: 01738 621031.
