Perthshire

Perthshire

Highland Perthshire is arguably one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland with many lochs, rivers, glens and high hills forming its majestic highland landscape. What sets the area apart from other areas of Scotland is that the bottoms of the glens are rich and fertile with many magnificent trees and farmland. By contrast the tops of the glens lead to rugged highland hilltops covered in heather and full of wild life that include the red deer, capercaillie, grouse, badger, golden eagle to name a few.

Watch out for white-washed Blair Castle, the ancient home of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl and the location of Europe’s only private army, the Atholl Highlanders.

On our journey south we will pass Pitlochry, a popular tourist town, which is located at the very heart of Highland Perthshire. It straddles the River Tummel, another of Scotland ’s popular fishing rivers.
