Perthshire and Kinross are home to some of the finest of Scotland’s tourist attractions. From historic castles, museums and art galleries to concert and music venues, world class golf courses to magnificent mountain scenery and coastline. Among the activities that can be enjoyed locally are hunting, fishing (river and loch), four wheel driving, gliding (at the Scottish Gliding Centre at Portmoak), cycling, canoeing and water sports, golfing, bird watching and much, much more. Your hosts, Heather and Cedric will be happy to talk itineraries with you with the benefit of their local knowledge.
Within an hour’s drive you can reach Gleneagles, Carnoustie and St Andrews. Edinburgh with its castle and world famous Festival in August is also less than an hour away, and you can reach it via the “park and ride” bus from Kinross. The ancient city of Perth has many historical attractions including Scone Palace, and the lesser known Fergusson Gallery devoted to the work of the famous Scots colourist. In Kinross, Loch Leven is the home of a national nature reserve, and the island castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned. There are many beautiful way-marked country walks taking in the Lomond Hills, Moncrieffe Hill, Loch Leven and Corsie Hill in Perth. To the north lies Birnam and Dunkeld where woodland walks as well as highland scenery can be enjoyed. The Fife coastline also offers a great variety of interest with its fishing villages and coastal walk.
