Castles abound, including Scone Palace, ancient coronation site of Scottish monarchs. Numerous stone circles, standing stones, forts, barrows as well as a concentration of Bronze Age sites are easy day trips. The famous Meikleour Hedge, planted as a legacy to locals who died at Culloden, is the biggest in the world.


See ospreys, have an adventurous safari or simply walk up the garden and into the hills for a chance to see deer, red squirrels, stoats, curlews, lapwings, eagles, grouse or hares. You might see otters on the river or salmon jumping.
