Holidays in the Perthshire countryside
No visit to Perthshire would be complete without a trip to stunning Glen Lyon. This beautiful glen, which spans some 25 miles from Forgingall to the tip of Loch Lyon, was once home to over 2000 Scots but now populated by less than 100. Visit in the spring and summer months to witness the hills as they light up with colour, and follow the sparkling River Lyon as it runs through wooded banks. Venture north to the Cairngorms National Park to see the huge mountain ranges, crystal clear rivers and an array of fantastic wildlife. If you're in a group, join an experienced guide on a tour of the park to learn more about the creatures and discover the best sights.
