Highland Perthshire in the Scottish Highlands

Highland Perthshire is situated in the geographic centre of Scotland, 25 miles north of Perth and 75 miles south from Inverness. When driving by car or coming by train from the south you realise you are reaching the Highlands just before you reach Dunkeld; there is a sudden and dramatic change in the landscape, with steep sided hills above the fertile wooded landscape in the glens.

What makes Highland Perthshire special is that no matter where you travel within the region you will find each area distinctive and unique. You will find a number of towns and villages each with their own special character, lochs, a whole variety of glens from the small hidden gems to the large wide long glens that are so associated with Scotland. There is the spectacular vastness of Rannoch Moor on its extreme west, the moor that nearly defeated the west railway line to Fort William over a century ago.highland-perthshire-areas-m.jpg
