Perthshire, The Cairngorms National Park & The Speyside Whisky Trail

Towering Mountains, Picturesque Lochs, Ancient Castles and Smooth Malts

A private adventure tour of Perthshire and the Cairngorms is a great way to take in some of Scotland’s most varied landscapes. The wonderful diversity of Highland Perthshire and the Tay Forest Park is breathtaking; picturesque lochs, steep sided glens, and ancient woodland trails with stunning viewpoints.

The small highland towns of Aberfeldy, Kenmore and Dunkeld are steeped in history, myths and local legend. Perthshire is known as Scotland’s larder so it’s hardly a surprise that the area is home to many of Scotland’s award winning Hotels & Restaurants.

The Cairngorms National Park is in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and was voted one of the top 20 places to visit in the world by National Geographic Traveller Magazine. The UK’s largest National Park, with its outstanding natural beauty, towering mountains, wild open spaces and stunning scenery, offers an abundance of opportunity for the outdoor adventurer.

A wide range of unforgettable adventures are available to suit everyone, from the less experienced through to the seasoned pro. High and low level hiking, trail & mountain biking, canoeing, pony trekking, fishing and wildlife watching - it’s your adventure, you choose!
