MORE than 5000 people will have enjoyed the light shows at a historic landmark by the event’s final night at the end of the month.

That number has already booked slots at ‘Brodie Illuminated’ - a collaboration between National Trust for Scotland and University of the Highlands and Islands - at Brodie Castle but there are still walk-around slots available according to operations manager, James Dean.

He said: “The event offers the chance to see the site in a new light and give people something to look forward to before Christmas.

"The theme is ‘Water’ to tie in with Visit Scotland’s ‘Year of Coasts and Waters’ so there are surface and underwater scenes.

"Look out for the moving projections and heritage trees lit up throughout the shrubbery.

"New for this year are also illuminated beech trees on West Avenue.”

The castle gardens use colours to create an enchanting atmosphere. The walls of the turreted 16th-century building are also bathed in light. Visitors will also appreciate the music, a new covered catering area and retail zone.

Visitor comments so far include “absolutely stunning - a bonnie feature”, “a lovely show that’s worth the drive” and “so very beautiful”.
