The luscious landscapes of Perth and Kinross provide visitors with ancient forests, Roman camps, medieval castles and plenty of cultural attractions to see.

Towns in the region include Aberfeldy, Loch Tay, Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Blairgowrie and the City of Perth.

With over half a million objects, Perth Museum and Art Gallery has a Recognised Collection of National Significance to Scotland. Another local gallery to Perth, the Fergusson Gallerycelebrates the life and work of the great pioneers of modern art and dance, John Duncan Fergusson and Margaret Morris, and often houses craft exhibitions and classes.

Visitors to Aberfeldy should take time to visit the workshop of furniture maker Angus Ross, who takes inspiration from his local countryside and uses natural materials from the Perthshire countryside to create his beautiful furniture. The Aberfeldy Watermill is also a fantastic place to visit, with an award-winning bookshop, gallery, cafè and craft and design homeware, all on three floors of a converted oatmeal mill. 

In Dunkeld, Broughton-Stuart Jewellery shop on the main street provides an opportunity to purchase work by Mokume-Gane goldsmith Craig Stuart, one of the only makers in the UK working in this technique with precious metals.

The annual Perthshire Open Studios take place in September, and provide a fantastic opportunity for people to see behind the scenes in maker and artist studios in Perthshire and Kinross.
