Snapshot of Perthshire
Capital: Perth (Population: approximately 45,000) Area of land covered: 6547km squareFamous Places: Falls of Dochart, Blair Castle, Scone Palace, Drummond Castle, Dunkeld Cathedral.The beautiful county of Perthshire is located in the heart of Scotland, and boasts some of the country’s most beautiful walks. But the county has more to it than just attractive walks. It has something for everyone. Perthshire is a haven for walkers with 250 miles of waymarked paths, many of them also suitable for mountain bikes and horse riding. There is an abundance of water-sports available throughout. Whether it is canoeing, white water rafting, sailing, and water-skiing you’re sure to find something to suit all ages and abilities. The county also has an array of high quality golf courses throughout, including the course at the world famous Gleneagles Hotel, which is near the town of Auchterarder.
To the East of the county is the town of Blairgowrie. Surrounded by Pictish and medieval history, it is the centre of the Scottish soft fruit growing industry (particularly raspberries), and is popular with golfers and anglers. Keen walkers can start the 64 mile/103km Cateran Trail. This circular route is full of magnificent landscapes with a wide range of changing terrain that should suit long distance walkers of any age. It has five distinct stages and a mini trail. For snow-sports enthusiasts, the town is the gateway to the slopes of Glenshee. This caters for year-round sports including skiing, golfing, mountain biking, abseiling, hang-gliding and paragliding. At Glenshee Ski Centre there are lots of options to choose from – you can join a class, go private, or hire an instructor for your group. It’s open all year if you prefer a walk in the hills.AberfeldyScotland’s first Fairtrade town. Retailers and attractions throughout the area doing their best to promote Fairtrade, organic and environmentally friendly produce. Here you’ll find Dewar’s World of Whisky – connoisseurs will enjoy their visit to this Distillery, which is said to be home of the Single Malt. Visitors can learn about one of the great brands in Scottish whisky, through an innovative and interactive five star exhibition.A mere six miles west of the town, you’ll find Loch Tay, which is the largest loch in Perthshire. Framed by magnificent mountains, hillside farms and cottages, the loch is a popular attraction for sailors and watersports aficionados. It is hard to believe that ancient settlers once lived on Loch Tay, in their very own man-made islands or crannogs. The Scottish Crannog Centre is a wonderfully reconstructed crannog built on the loch showing a fascinating picture of early Iron Age life.
