Known as Big Tree Country, Perthshire boasts an array of diverse scenery from gentle rolling hills, verdant woodlands and winding rivers such as the Tay and Tummel to the more dramatic landscapes of high peaks and tumbling waterfalls.

Woodlands at Blair Atholl, Killiecrankie and Dunkeld are famous for their large trees and Ben Lawyers overlooking Loch Tay is one of Britain’s top areas for arctic-alpine plants.

There is plenty to see and do from adrenaline fuelled activities such as mountain biking, canyoning and white-water rafting to the softer activities such as wildlife safaris, boat trips or a gentle paddle in one of the many stunning lochs by kayak, canoe or SUP. There is adventure for all levels of capability.

There is an abundance of magnificent and some of Scotland’s most iconic wildlife in Perthshire from red, roe and fallow deer to red squirrels and soaring ospreys which can be seen from Loch of the Lowes Nature Reserve. Central Perthshire is one of the best places to see the European beavers in the wild which can be experienced on foot or by kayak with a guide.
