The Scotland region

When Sir Walter Scott, in his book 'The Fair Maid of Perth' claimed that , "In all the provinces of Scotland, if an intelligent stranger were asked to describe the most varied and the most beautiful, it is probable that he would name the county of Perth." We have to say that we agree. And of all the stunning places within that county, the area of St Fillans is surely one of the most beautiful.

Perthshire is know as the 'gateway to the highlands' and the landscape has it all: from rolling plains to soaring mountains, from lochs and glens, to rivers and waterfalls. Contained within that scenery is an abundance of stunning flora and fauna. The flora includes the famous Douglas Firs at Scone Palace, the worlds tallest beech hedge at Blairgowrie and the worlds tallest pine tree at the Hermitage. The fauna includes deer and red squirrels, ospreys and eagles, trout and salmon.

Within this beautiful area lies a fascinating cultural history, which includes wonderful castles and palaces, standing stones and battlefields, monuments and art galleries. The cities of Perth and Stirling have a wealth of history. It was here that kings were crowned and battles fought. And let's not forget whisky; where the distilleries of Perthshire have brought global recognition.

For outdoor enthusiasts there are endless pursuits to be had. The lochs and rivers provide the perfect environment for all water sports, including trout and salmon fishing, sailing and water-skiing. The area is well known for it's hill walking and mountain biking and there are many opportunities for other activities such as bird watching, horse riding, shooting and stalking.

For a more relaxed holiday Perthshire is renowned for it's wonderful culinary experiences, theatres and museums. Across the seasons there are numerous festivals and highland games to watch or take part in.

This is a mere sample of the opportunities and adventures to be had here. We could go on , but why not come and see for yourself.

“Stunning”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2016

Lochview is a lovely property well located on the shores of Loch Earn plus well equipped and very clean with everything you need for your stay. Fluffy towels and a very comfortable king size bed and lot's of other home comfort's It truly was home from home. We found Richard the owner to be a very friendly man and very knowledgeable about the local area and all that it offers. It was a lovely touch that we were left a bottle of prosecco,tea,milk,bread,butter and eggs and a welcome card. Thank you for making our stay in this beautiful part of Scotland special and we will certainly be returning in the near future. ☺

Hi Deborah, Many thanks for the great review. It was great to meet you and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future, although I may not be able to guarantee the weather you had! Best wishes, Richard and Carol.
