Perthshire is home to an abundance of beautiful rivers and marshes where you can spend a refreshing day in the great outdoors while walking, fishing and wildlife watching.

Perthshire offers some of the best fishing in the country. Cast your line in the magnificent River Tay, one of the top five salmon rivers in Scotland. Widely regarded as one of the best rivers in Europe for Atlantic salmon fishing, anglers from across the world visit it every year to cast their lines in its powerful currents. Its smaller tributaries including the Earn, Isla, Ericht, Tummel, Garry, Dochart, Lyon and Eden are also fantastic salmon beats. 

Discover more nature and geography like the tumbling rapids of the Linn of Tummel and the fine surrounding woodland.  In spring, watch out for migrant birds returning including the wood warbler, willow warbler and redstarts. In the summer months, you can admire meadows awash with beautiful wildflowers such as yarrow, meadow cranes-bills and ox-eye daisies.
