View Comments

Follow the little and large adventures of a galloping giant (Big) and a tiny traveller (Little) in Perthshire as they appear in our series of short videos. Find out what they get up to as they roam in the land of the giants and discover all the mightily fun things to do in Big Tree Country; from adrenaline-fuelled activities and awe-inspiring landscapes to rich history and delicious local produce, there’s so much for these two to experience… with a few surprises along the way!

Little and Big in PINECONE POINT TRAIL, CRAIGVINEAN FOREST near Dunkeld

Big Tree Country is known for its big trees and big views! Follow Little and Big as they discover Pinecone Point and take in its spectacular views. Explore more woodland trails across Tay Forest Park  where you can spot wildlife and discover legends of demons and dragons, saints and queens along the way.

Little and Big in an OUTDOOR ADVENTURE ON THE CATERAN TRAIL

Are you up for a big or little walk? One of Scotland’s Great Trails, the Cateran Trail is a fully way-marked, 64-mile (103 km) route which you too can do in little or large chunks. See what our characters got up to! Pull on your walking boots and follow in their footsteps to explore the great outdoors. There are some great walking routes across Perthshire, whether you fancy a gentle stroll or a more active hike.

Little and Big HIGHLAND FLING BUNGEE, Killiecrankie

Take the plunge with our characters Little and Big in this high-octane activity. Are you brave enough to try the Highland Fling Bungee? If flying through the air is not for you, then you could always bag a Munro, tackle a rapid with some white-water rafting or tee-off on some of Scotland’s finest golf courses, to name but a few activities.

Little and Big in HIGHLAND SAFARIS HIDE AND SEEK, Aberfeldy

The scenery is large, as is the fun. See Little and Big on a Highland Safari in Perthshire when they spot (each other) and meet local wildlife. Autumn is a great time to catch a glimpse of red squirrels, see capercaillies and observe (and hear!) the red deer ruts. Or look out for the sight and sound of thousands of pink-footed geese landing as our winter visitors at Loch Leven Nature Reserve.

Little and Big in A FRUITFUL AFTERNOON 

It’s literally rich picking for food and drink in Perthshire. Little and Big go fruit picking to sample some of Perthshire’s famed raspberries. Find more tasty treats at Scotland’s first farmers’ market in Perth or delve into the many well-stocked farm shops across Perthshire. From Michelin-starred dining to cosy cafés, you’ll find lots of yummy local produce to try.

Little and Big in Glenturret Escapades

Little and Big visit Scotland’s oldest distillery, Glenturret, and enjoy the Famous Grouse Experience to discover the traditions of whisky making!

Perthshire is also home to the smallest whisky distillery, Edradour – just perfect for our character Little. Across the region, there are plenty more distilleries to discover which produce wonderful Highland whiskies. Slainte!

Little and Big in The Enchanted Forest, Faskally Wood, Pitlochry

A sprinkling of light, music, action… Faskally Wood is brought to life in a spectacular light and sound show! Little and Big get into the groove at The Enchanted Forest and enjoy extra dazzle into the darker months.

If you’re in the mood to see mind-intriguing, sense-teasing art through interactive installations and immersive technology in the great outdoors, then this is the perfect event.

Little and Big In A DAY OUT AT SCONE PALACE

Little and Big’s day out at Scone Palace – the Crowning Place of Scottish kings where Macbeth, Robert the Bruce and Charles II were all crowned – is as exciting and colourful as Scone Palace’s history. Visit for yourself and discover the palace’s connections to Mary Queen of Scots, Marie Antoinette and Queen Victoria!

Scone Palace is surrounded by beautiful gardens and peaceful woodland, perfect for a little stroll or even a picnic – all under the watchful eye of the ever-curious peacocks.
