Starting and finishing at the House, ‘Wondrous Woods’ lights up a 2km woodland trail designed and produced by the team at 21CC Group, leading visitors to unique and unseen areas of the grounds.

The track winds through hidden pathways amongst ancient woodlands, clearings and past the old summerhouse before leading visitors back via the Lime Avenue, but not before seeing the magnificent Hopetoun House lit up in all its glory; all with some special views along the way.

Along with the creative lighting, there are a number of sound and special effects, movement and installations, all of which are intended to enhance the nature and natural beauty that is the Wondrous Woods of Hopetoun House.

Geoff Crow, director of 21CC Group, said: “The Hopetoun trails offer us a spectacular environment, really like no other, with a fantastic amount of ground space which allows us to safely deliver this creative lighting journey, ensuring that we are adhering to the strictest of safety guidelines.

“It has been an absolute joy to work with one of Scotland’s best known visitor attractions to bring our vision to life and create something truly special for our guests.”

21CC Group have worked extensively with the Hopetoun team for many years, collaborating with them for the delivery of the popular Hopetoun Fireworks & Bonfire event, as well as the delivery of multiple large scale corporate events both within the House and the grounds.

The Earl of Hopetoun added: “We are delighted to be the venue for the inaugural Wondrous Woods.

“It is thrilling for me to see the grounds come to life after dark with all the creative lighting and effects that are planned. This is the first time we have hosted such an ambitious event at night and it’s hugely exciting, following such a difficult year for us all, to develop something so different for Hopetoun.

“We look forward to welcoming you back here to see something unique.”
