Introducing Perthshire & Kinross

For sheer scenic variety, Perthshire is the pick of Scotland's regions and a place where everyone will find a special, personal spot − whether it's a bleak moor, snaking loch, postcard-perfect village or magnificent forest. Highlights are many: the enchanting valley of Glen Lyon strikes visitors dumb with its wild and remote beauty; stunning Loch Tay is nearby; and the River Tay runs east from here towards Dunkeld, with its cathedral among the most beautifully situated in the country.

Things begin sedately in the southeast corner with Perth itself, a fine country town with a fabulous attraction in lavish Scone Palace, and get gradually wilder as you move northwards and westwards, moving through wooded slopes and river-blessed valleys, culminating in the bleak expanse of Rannoch Moor.
