VIDEO: Fairy lantern parade in Rothesay wood

Rothesay’s Skeoch Woods were transformed into a magical fairy wonderland on Monday evening.

A lantern parade through the woods was the climax to two afternoons spent decorating the woods with dream catchers and other hand-made creations.

Monday’s event, and a ‘decoration day’ at the end of August, were put together by Jessica Herriot, from Wood Watch Heritage Bute, and Angela Callaghan, as part of efforts to reconnect Bute’s young people - and their families! - with their natural surroundings.

This short video clip features just some of the participants in Monday’s parade. The lanterns have now been carefully put away, with the hope that they can be used again at a similar event towards the end of October - watch The Buteman for further details.
