Visit Perthshire for its calming glens and verdant green forests that gave inspiration to Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott, and it’s easy to see why. Part of the region is know as the Big Tree Country and it a world away from city life and the perfect place to escape to.
The landscape in Perthshire is truly spectacular and the region is home to some of Scotland’s most magnificent mountains including the mighty Schiehallion. Perthshire is glorious in the autumn when the forests turn into a glowing landscape of orange and red.
It’s not just about the beautiful landscape though, there are plenty of attractions and events across the region to keep all the family entertained. The Perth Museum and Art Gallery showcases art ranging from work by the Old Masters to Pictish stones and The Fergusson Gallery celebrates Scottish colourists including John Duncan Fergusson.
Or why not visit some of Perthshire’s most iconic historic attractions? Scone Palace is a must visit as the site of the Palace was once where Scone Abbey stood. Scone Abbey was an extremely important place in the Middle Ages as it was where the coronations of Scotland’s kings took place. Other historic attractions include Huntingtower Castle and Elcho Castle.
With a wide variety of things to do, why not stay in a pub when you visit Perthshire? Pubs offer guests the chance to really experience life in Scotland and are a perfect base to explore the region, meet the locals and find out about hidden gems in the area you wouldn’t otherwise have known about.
