Perthshire is one of Europe's finest activity playgrounds, thanks to the diverse range of land- and water-based pursuits on offer, set against some truly exceptional natural backdrops.

You'll find walking routes aplenty, ranging from waymarked forest trails and lofty treks in the mountains to long-distance routes such as the Cateran Trail and the Rob Roy Way.  There's also world-class fishing on one of the greatest salmon rivers anywhere, some of the UK's best on- and off-road cycling routes plus an unsurpassed range of golf courses to satisfy all abilities.

Perthshire is also a renowned courty sports destination where you can find premier-quality outlets for rod and gun over a fantastic mix of terrain.

But there's much more to Perthshire than just mainstream activities. Test your nerve with a spot of cliff jumping, river bugging or canyoning before sending your adrenaline levels soaring at the UKs only static bungee jump over the River Garry at Killiecrankie.

However you prefer to get out and get active, Perthshire has it covered.
