Perthshire

Perthshire is one of the most attractive and diverse counties in Scotland. From the lush farmland of the south to the rocky rivers and mountains of Highland Perthshire, it’s a stunningly beautiful place to be.

Our landscapes are truly amazing. We have snow-topped mountains that attract skiers and climbers from all over the UK, fast-flowing rivers for enjoying adventure sports, tranquil lochs for escaping the rush of modern life, and an abundance of beautiful forests and gardens. Not forgetting the world’s highest beech hedge and the UK’s oldest tree!

Perthshire is steeped in history, too. Step inside a Crannog on Loch Tay or visit the former crowning place of Scotland’s kings and queens at Scone Palace. Take a boat trip to where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned, or visit the spot where King James I met with a dramatic fate in 1437. Modern-day Perthshire is, thankfully, a much more cheerful place to be!
