Perthshire is described as big tree country, and the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. A beautiful landscape of natural beauty, renowned for its Lochs and rivers and salmon and trout fishing.
There are many visitor attractions to enjoy - Stirling Castle, which has been acknowledged as one of the world's 40 best visitor attractions, Wallace's monument, Scone Palace, and The Famous Grouse Whisky Distillery in Crieff. Highland Games are held throughout the regions in the summer months and are a joy to behold.
The city of Perth is an architectural delight, a lovely old Scottish city on the banks of the mighty river Tay, and is well worth a visit.

Scotland is well known for its New Year celebrations. Hogmanay street parties are commonplace, and if you come to stay you could visit the neighbouring village of Comrie and watch the ancient ritual of 12 strong men in kilts parading around the village carrying burning cabers to ward off any ill spirits, accompanied by pipe bands in full highland dress, with revellers and dancing in the streets. When the bells ring out at midnight to bring in the New Year the flaming torches are hurled off the bridge and into the River Earn to extinguish the old year, and to bring in the New Year.
