Many visitors to Scotland tend to explore its two major cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, and then escape to the more remote regions, such as the Highlands or Hebrides. There are, however, plenty of other great regions to see along the way, and the region of Perth and Kinross is replete with both historical sites and thrilling outdoor activities that you won’t want to miss.
Stay in a Hotel in Perth
Just a short trip north of Edinburgh, Perth, the former capital of Scotland, sits on the banks of the River Tay, and is a culinary hot spot. Its surrounding countryside is also home to a number of important monuments and buildings, such as Scone Palace, Blair Castle, and Loch Leven, all sites that have played an important role in Scottish history.
Visit Castle Campbell in Dollar
Castle Campbell is a 15th century tower fortress and garden located between the city of Stirling and the waters of Loch Leven. It sits dramatically, overlooking Dollar Glenn, and was the southern stronghold for the Campbell Earls of Argyll. On top of its remarkable views, the property also features terraced gardens and ‘John Knox’s Pulpit’.
