Perthshire’s ‘Big Tree Country’ is very popular for its stunning trees and forests. The county’s tranquil woodlands are the most remarkable both in the UK, and in Europe.

The amazing Spring colours of nature are just a ‘must’ to see when in the region. So, put your hiking boots on and explore!

Perthshire distilleries

One of the first things that comes to everyone’s minds when they think about Scotland is whisky (and redheads, probably). So, it’s no surprise that Scottish distilleries are on this list. Oh, and luckily, many of them are in Perthshire!

One of the most popular Scottish visitor attractions is, in fact, the oldest distillery in the country - The Famous Grouse Experience is based at Glenturret Distillery. It is situated in Perthshire, along with Scotland’s smallest distillery – Edradour Distillery. Both are worth visiting, offering a lot to see, learn and... sample!

The Scottish Crannog Centre

“A living museum on the water!” The award-winning visitor and education centre is definitely an attraction you should visit when in Perthshire. And since it reopens on 1st April, Spring is the perfect time for that.

The centre will engage you in exhibitions, demonstrations and activities in relation to the reconstructed crannogs (ancient loch-dwellings) - underwater discoveries dating back to the early Iron Age. Inspirational, entertaining and educational – a 5-star authentic experience!
