Here are just some of our selected highlights from the wealth of day trips possible from such a superb central location:
Loch Ness – a fairly extensive but very rewarding trip via Pitlochry and Laggan to Loch Ness then return via Fort William, Ben Nevis, Glencoe and Crianlarich back to Perth.
Loch Tay and Glen Lyon – a beautiful trip via Aberfeldy and Scotland’s oldest tree at Fortingall. A welcome lunch stop at Killin.
Cairngorms – visit the newly formed and controversial Cairngorm National Park, perhaps with a shopping stop at the House of Bruar.
Loch Lomond – yes closer than you think – go west.
Aberdeen, the Granite City – either via Dundee (City of Discovery) and the coastal route, or through Glenshee, Braemar and Royal Deeside – or both!!
Royal Deeside – via Pitlochry to Glenshee and Braemar, and onward to Balmoral and the delightful village of Ballater.
Edinburgh – a comfortable hour takes you to the capital city and all its shops, history and attractions.
Glasgow – again a comfortable 1.5 hours drive.
St. Andrews – and ample time for a game of golf - less than an hour’s drive.
