Perthshire's calming glens and full and lush forests 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 a way 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.
