Perthshire's Countryside Has It All

We are lucky to be situated in some of the most beautiful countryside in all of Scotland.  The hills of Perthshire are globally renowned for their beauty and have more than 200,000 acres of woodlands, which include more champion trees than anywhere else in the UK, Perthshire is Big Tree Country. Together these create Scotland’s most spectacular trees and woodlands, where there are lots of different experiences to discover and enjoy.

On a day out in Perthshire Big Tree Country, you could see Europe’s oldest tree, waterfalls, lochs, tranquil deciduous and man-made woodlands, and much more. You can also discover the diverse flora and fauna from stunning spring bluebell woods to spectacular autumn colours and from ospreys nesting to salmon leaping.
