Perthshire is located at the geographical centre of Scotland. It is often referred to as the 'heart of Scotland' or 'Big Tree Country' as in Perthshire you are never far from an ancient tree. An amazingly fertile and diverse county of Scotland, Perthshire offers everything from charming Scottish towns such as 'the fair city of Perth' (from which the county takes its name), Crief, Dunkeld, Pitlochry and Aberfeldy to name a few. Heading north from the flood plains of the River Tay you quickly encounter the rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands.
Perthshire's northern reaches are well and truly 'Scottish Highland' territory, with jagged mountain peaks, snow covered for much of the year, to fast flowing salmon rivers. Surrounding the highland town of Pitlochry typically romantic highland scenery awaits the visitor such, not to mention the amazing Blair Atholl Castle home to the Dukes of Atholl. The Duke has his unique private army of tartan clad pipers - well worth a seeing.
We believe Perthshire to be one of the most stunning parts of Scotland and recommend our clients visit this ancient and enchanting Scottish county.

"Sandgrouse Travel carefully planned the trip of a lifetime, an unforgettable experience to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. They meticulously planned all aspects of the trip from our first night stay in a fantastic lodge, the 8 day expedition and then finally a one night stay in one of Tanzania’s top Lodges which was much needed luxury after the long climb. I was particularly impressed with the guides and porters that Jonny at Sandgrouse had arranged to help us. We successfully summited at 6am on the 7th day to watch an amazing sunrise which had been the plan from the start, and was testament to Jonny’s careful planning and organisation of the trip.
Dealing with Sandgrouse Travel has been an enjoyable experience, not only are they extremely professional but also very personal and enthusiastic. Coupled with their valuable first hand experience ensured we had the time of our lives. I have since travelled again with Sandgrouse Travel to Norway’s Hordaland Mountains and they are now currently planning my next trip for early 2016.
I would highly recommend anyone looking for a personalised and authentic experience to speak to the Sandgrouse Travel team."
