The Best of Perthshire for Tour Groups visiting Scotland
Glen Lyon is often described as the most beautiful Glen in Scotland. Please take a trip along this beautiful landscape during you Pitlochry holiday. We recommend you drive onwards to Loch Tay and Kenmore, then on to Aberfeldy, the Spirit of Wood, Dewars Distillery and the Highland Chocolatier. This makes for a truly fabulous day out.

Newtonmore and Kingussie
It’s best to set aside a day for visiting Newtonmore and Kingussie in order to have enough time to experince their delights. Don’t miss the Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie and Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore. We recommend visitng these morning and afternoon to be free by 4pm for Working Sheepdogs at Kncraig, followed by tea at Loch Insch Watersports Centre, hopefully catching a spectacular sunset over the head of Loch Insch. Both Working Sheepdogs and Loch Insch Sports Centre are located in Kincraig.
