From its serene glens and endless expanses of lush forest, to its bleakly beautiful moors, rushing rivers and tumbling waterfalls, it's easy to see why Perthshire was named "The fairest portion of the northern kingdom" by Sir Walter Scott. Located around the fair city of Perth in the east of Scotland, the Perthshire boundaries stretch from Strathmore in the east, to the Pass of Drumochter in the north, Rannoch Moor and Ben Lui in the west, and Aberfoyle in the south.
Enjoy the perfect holiday in Perthshire with plenty of things to do, including family-friendly days out or adrenaline fuelled outdoor activities. Known as the 'Big Tree Country' Perthshire boasts magnificent arboreal specimens in the many verdant woodlands, forests and gardens across the region. Escape into this beautiful wilderness where awesome peaks like Schiehallion and Ben Lawers can be scaled and some of Scotland's most iconic species can be observed in their natural environment, from majestic red deer stags to soaring ospreys.
You can now travel short distances of around 5 miles to enjoy the outdoors and exercise in Scotland, to use public spaces for recreational purposes such as sitting to soak up the sun (where possible!), and to meet up with one other household in small numbers. Please remember to maintain physical distancing of 2 metres at all times, both indoors and outdoors.
The following activities are also now possible, following the above advice, during Phase 1: cycling, fishing, horse riding, golf, walking, hiking and watersports.
