Welcome to Highland Perthshire

A warm welcome to Highland Perthshire - an area famed for dramatic mountains, glens and lochs, ancient castles and unspoilt nature; for golf, fishing, walking and adventure; for distinctive cultural venues and exciting events.
 
Located at the geographical heart of Scotland, within easy reach of busy cities like Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, Highland Perthshire is at the heart of Perthshire Big Tree Country and boasts some of Europe’s most remarkable woodlands – all easily accessible on dozens of waymarked paths and trails.
 
Our main towns and villages of Pitlochry, Aberfeldy, Dunkeld & Birnam, Blair Atholl and Kinloch Rannoch are all within short drives of each other - while you can go from the auditorium of one of Scotland's major theatres to the lower slopes of one of Scotland's highest mountains in under an hour, taking a journey that passes through some of the Highlands' most breathtaking scenery.

With a fantastic range of accommodation of all types, delightful places to experience local food and drink, and ample opportunities for distinctive retail therapy, Highland Perthshire is where you’ll find everything that makes Scotland special.
