If travelling to the region by ferry, it is possible to take your car with you. However there are plenty of car hire operators in Perthshire where you can rent a vehicle once you arrive. Car hire companies operating in Perth include Grassicks of Perth and Turner Hire Drive. Arnold Clark and Enterprise Rent-A-Car also have branches in Perth.
While the M90 from Edinburgh and the M80, M9 and A9 from Glasgow and Stirling offer the quickest routes into the region, the Perthshire Tourist Route provides a scenic alternative to travelling by motorway and dual carriageway.
This charming drive follows the line taken by General Wade's 18th century military road, bypassing the A9 via Crieff and Aberfeldy.
Perthshire’s quiet country roads make cycling one of the best ways to explore the region and soak up its stunning scenery. You can either bring your own bike or hire one once you arrive here.
Leave the car behind and make use of the region’s extensive networks of regular bus routes. Many bus stations are located in Perth city centre which offer services to most Perthshire towns and villages while Scottish Citylink and National Express operate routes that connect the region to every city and major town in Britain.
School buses and post buses will sometimes take passenger to more remote areas of the region.
Perthshire has several railway stations which provide rail links to Edinburgh and Glasgow and neighbouring towns. There are some direct services from London available which take less than six-and-a-half hours journey time. A sleeper service direct from London is also available. Getting to and from the stations is easy with many taxi ranks and bus stations located nearby.
