So many places lay claim to being the ‘Heart of Scotland'. Well Perthshire truly is. Gentle glens, capped by cathedral like peaks that fall away to forested slopes, sparkling clear lochs, rushing rivers, sensational castles and ruins, and famous Scotch whisky distilleries. Home to Gleneagles, one of the finest golf resorts and hotels in the world, not to mention the visitor delights of Pitlochry, Crieff, Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Dunkeld, and Perth itself
Glorious visitor attractions in Perthshire include Killiecrankie, the Queens View, Blair Castle, The Hermitage at Dunkeld, Schiehallion, Scotland 's favourite mountain, shopping par excellence at the House of Bruar – Scotland 's Harrods, Scone Palace, home to Perth Races, and The Famous Grouse Experience at Crieff
A riot of colour changing as do the seasons, the beauty of Perthshire – and famous ‘Perthshire Tree Country’ - is perhaps at its most stunning in autumn. This perfect backdrop for relaxation and romance makes weekend breaks, romantic breaks and extended holidays and vacations in Perthshire one of Scotland 's fastest growing pastimes
And the great outdoors is bristling with activity, country and adventure sports opportunities amongst the very finest in Scotland. From salmon fishing on the famous River Tay, to some of the best rafting and kayaking in Scotland
