Perthshire’s past has been a long and colourful one and there are many historic sites located throughout the region where you can learn about fascinating events in the region’s history.

One of the famous and scenic historic sites in Perthshire is the Pass of Killiecrankie, a deep wooded gorge which the River Garry flows through. A popular beauty spot in autumn when the trees turn a vibrant array of crimson and golden hues, the Pass is best known for Soldier’s Leap, the location of a legendary episode during the Jacobite period. See where an English redcoat is said to have made a death-defying jump across the gorge while fleeing bloodthirsty Highlanders after the Battle of Killiecrankie.
