Perthshire is in the geographical heart of Scotland, at the foot of the Scottish Highlands. With the Highland boundary line passing through it the scenery ranges from lush green field and forests to mighty and dominating mountain ranges in the north. With over 200,000 acres of woodland Perthshire is nicknamed "Big tree country" and it's here you will find the four largest trees in Britain as well as probably the oldest living thing in Europe, the Fortingall Yew. You can also find the longest hedge in Britain, which is also the highest in the world, just a few miles south of Blairgowrie. Perthshire is also home to some of the most historically significant events in Scotland, including the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689 and the Battle of Dupplin Moor in 1332. There are many castles and palaces such as Scone Palace which was the coronation site for Scottish kings for centuries.
