Activities

The heart of Highland Perthshire in Scotland is not only a great place for activities and outdoor pursuits, it is also one of those parts of Scotland that seems to have something for everyone - simply a lovely part of the world to spend time in pursuit of the great outdoors.

Highland Perthshire offers outdoor adventure for all ages. If you want something relaxed and leisurely, you can explore the great outdoors on board a 4x4, by bicycle or by foot. You can watch the amazing wildlife and enjoy the stunning scenery. For something more heart-pumping, you can test your skills at off-road driving and put a Land Rover to the test by driving it over rough terrain and steep, slippery gradients.

  • Pitlochry Golf

    Discover one of the finest golf courses in Scotland. Pitlochry Golf club is renowned for its stunning scenery and challenging course.

It’s highly recommended and shouldn’t be missed.

  • Walking - Climbing

    Scotland is a ramblers’ paradise. The spectacular scenery, rugged landscapes and steep mountains call out to be explored and conquered.

The country’s smallest distillery, Edradour, which produces whisky the same way they did 150 years ago, is located in Perthshire. Edradour only makes 12 casks a week, making this malt quite rare.

  • The Scottish Crannog Centre

    Over five thousand years ago, loch-dwellers throughout Scotland and Ireland built houses out in the water for safety and as a status symbol. These building were called Crannogs. The Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology has reconstructed these buildings authentically at The Scottish Crannog centre.  Visit the centre and discover why they built the crannogs and experience first-hand how they lived here.

  • Off Road Driving

    Experience real off-road driving and discover what a 4x4 can do in the most challenging environment.
