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.

With some of the most charming villages, bucolic views and historic sites in the country, Perthshire North is quintessential Scotland.

 

Robert Burns waxed lyrical in his famous song ‘The Birks O’ Aberfeldy.’ This bustling wee town on the River Tay is popular with sailors and water sports enthusiasts, as well as history buffs. There is much to explore here- the Scottish Crannog Centre, the Black Watch Monument, Dewar’s World of Whisky and beautiful St Mary’s Chapel. Nearby Glen Lyon is called the longest, loneliest, loveliest glen in all of Scotland.

 

The twin burgh of Blairgowrie and Rattray is situated on the banks of the River Ericht. Those looking for an active holiday find lots to love here- world-class golf, play parks, fishing, shooting and skiing in the southern Cairngorms. Stylish High Street shops and an excellent selection of cafés, bistros and restaurants make this a great base from which to explore North Perthshire.

 

Stop in at Kenmore for a hearty meal and a pint in front of the fire at the oldest inn in Scotland. Nearby, the delightful town of Pitlochry is a favourite spot for visitors because of the Highland hospitality, gorgeous scenery and rich history. Friendly locals cater for holidaymakers, offering exceptional food at a variety of cafés, bistros and first class restaurants.

As Burns wrote about this lovely part of Scotland: ‘Now Simmer blinks on flowery braes, And o’er the crystal streamlets plays; Come let us spend the lightsome days, In the birks of Aberfeldy.’
