Plan a countryside walk to see some of the waterfalls in Perthshire. Marvel at the power and force of these natural features and look out for salmon leaping upstream.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing family day out or want to admire some local flora or fauna, explore Perthshire’s waterfalls at which the region excels, and you’re guaranteed to be awestruck by their natural beauty.

Follow a series of waymarked paths meandering through the woods and discover the delightful variety of mixed woodland on your way to Black Spout. This 60 m high whitestream of water on the Edradour Burn offers an enjoyable walk that is perfect for quiet reflection, while at the Rumbling Bridge Falls you can hear the constant rumbling sound of the dark swirling pools in the gorge.

For your chance to encounter the fascinating local wildlife, head to Linn of Tummel glen and discover a waterfall of the same name. This meeting place of the rivers Garry and Tummel features a series of picturesque rocky rapids and is home to otters, pine martens and red squirrels to name but a few.

Visit Buchanty Spout, a dramatic pothole and powerful waterfall on the River Almond, and enjoy the spectacle of leaping wild Atlantic salmon as they fight their way up through the gushing torrents. Or why not follow in the footsteps of Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns, and see for yourself the beauty of Falls of Moness that so enthralled the writer that he penned the famous poem The Birks of Aberfeldie?

If you’re short on time or energy, take the short route from House of Bruar near Blair Atholl and visit the magnificent Falls of Bruar, or if you're near the village of Acharn, head to the small man-made cavern and viewing platform from where you can appreciate the height and power of the Falls of Acharn.

Wherever in Perthshire you are, make sure you pay a visit to one of the amazing waterfalls and you’ll find yourself being at one with nature.
