Perthshire is home to some of the most spectacular mountainous terrain in Scotland. Its majestic hills and mountains, many of which scale heights of over 3000 ft, make it a perfect destination for Munro-bagging.

Climb to the pinnacle of Schiehallion, one of Scotland’s most iconic peaks, and explore the hiking trails over Ben Lawers which stands proudly overlooking the tranquil Loch Tay.

Whether you choose to explore Perthshire's mountains and hill on foot or by mountain bike, you’re guaranteed spectacular views and the chance to see rare flora and fauna ranging from delicate Arctic plants to red deer and soaring birds of prey.

Perthshire boasts some of the most dramatic alpine scenery in the country and offers a playground for enthusiastic hillwalkers and climbers. Reach the tops of Munros such as Ben Chonzie, a solitary peak at the head of Glenturret, and the Lawers Massif, a range of several Munros located below Ben Lawers, the region’s highest peak. Perthshire is also home to a number of Corbetts, several of which are located in Glen Lyon and offer climbers with shorter but no less rewarding ascents.

Discover the region’s other impressive peaks like Moncreiffe Hill, a beautiful wooded ridge that offer breathtaking views across the River Tay, Strathearn and further afield to Fife and the Lomond Hills. You can even climb to the summit of Dunsinane Hill, the same one appears in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Here you’ll be met with the remains of two Iron Age hill forts and breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.
