Perthshire Greener Resorts

Perthshire, in the very heart of Scotland, is little more than an hour by bus or train from the major cities of Glasgow or Edinburgh, and yet a world away. Packed with quaint towns and some of the most scenic of Scottish glens, you can lace up your walking boots and take a wander along the 250 miles of waymarked paths passing through Roman camps, medieval castles, perhaps pausing at the whisky distilleries and discover why this beautiful region is known as ‘Big Tree Country’.  

Explore the hills and mountains of the Cairngorms National Park in Highland Perthshire to see the wildlife and soak up the stunning scenery. You can ride, bike, canoe or climb here. Framed by two grand public parks and the striking Tay Street promenade, the city of Perth itself offers the best in shopping, nightlife and culture if you prefer civilisation to natural beauty.

The following businesses are part of the Perthshire Greener Resorts initiative, coordinated by Perth & Kinross Council and Green Tourism Business Scheme.

Watch the video in which five of the businesses decribe what green tourism means to them:
