The picturesque region of Perthshire South could be straight out of a fairytale. Nestled between Loch Tay and the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, the spirits of Robert Burns and Rob Roy live on and the ancient past is palpable.
Killin, which means ‘White Church’ in Gaelic, is located on the dramatic Falls of Dochart, one of the most photographed in Scotland. From its bridge, you can see the ancient burial ground of the once powerful MacNab Clan, and nearby is a prehistoric stone circle and Finlarig Castle, which is said to have once hosted Rob Roy.
And speaking of the famous Scottish hero, Rob Roy Way runs right through the village and along Loch Tay, offering panoramic views of the Tarmachan Ridge and Ben Lawers.
Dunblane is an ancient town, founded, according to legend, in 602 by St Blane, a Celtic missionary. The Medieval cathedral and nearby buildings, with the Allan Water running through it, give Dunblane a true old world feeling. Bookworms will enjoy browsing rare volumes in Leighton Library, the oldest private library in Scotland.
Escape to Perthshire South for a relaxing holiday in true Scottish style.
