On the Map: Perthshire’s Perfect Stays

7 October 2021

Who wouldn’t want to pay a visit to the “fairest portion of the northern kingdom?”

That’s how the great Sir Walter Scott once described Perthshire, and happily, Scotland‘s magical ‘Big Tree Country’ has remained just as fair in these modern times.

Characterised by fairytale woodland, sparkling glens, towering munros – and of course, big trees! – nature lovers will rejoice in this magnificent part of the world, in which diverse wildlife thrives.

Even Perth, a city that was Scotland’s ancient capital for five centuries, is rich in natural beauty; nestled between two green public parks and set on the banks of the River Tay.

Get ready to immerse your soul in perfect Perthshire, with a stay in one of these unusual retreats.
