Pitlochry and Perthshire

by lou31

Hi All,
I have changed my plans for the Scottish part of my UK holiday but need to settle on an itinery soon so I can start booking things. I am travelling from Australia. Now I've decided I would like to spend more time in Scotland. Am looking at a short stay in Pitlochry. What would I be able to see in regards to flora and fauna in late May?. I would like to go walking etc and may be horse riding. Would 30 pounds a night get me a decent B&B?. Also when is the heather in flower and are there any vters living around the area? Questions, questions I just seem to go on and on......... but would really appreciate any advise.
Cheers.................Louise

Not sure about flaura and fauna. There's definitely plenty of good walking in that area. You should be fine to get a decent B&B for £30. Try the local tourist board site - www.perthshire.co.uk
The accommodation part leads you to the main Scottish website - which I don't like. I'd just do a search. You might want to search using www.mirago.co.uk and you can filter it down to Pitlochry.

Hope this helps

Anne

Hello again Louise,
Good to see that you're now going to spen more time in Scotland. To answer about late May this time of year is great usually but always come prepared for some rain! Heather on the hills is mainly in bloom late August into September I'm afraid but having said that there are approximately 300 varieties of heather and you might at least one kind albit in small amounts in places if you keep you eyes open!!
£30 for B&B should get you an average place out of towns & touristy types of places :) But the more popular places, expect to pay alot more and remember if you are travelling along there will usually be a singel supplement charge to pay as well. I live about 120 miles or so from the Perth.
Cheers Roy

after posting I noticed that I should have said ' if you are travelling alone' NOT if you are travelling along

Different types of heather flower at different times of year but the stuff you see on hills is mostly in the late summer. You might see it in peoples gardens though, we have heather that flowers in winter in ours.

My parents used a website called undiscovered Scotland [or something similar] to find B&Bs when they went on a roadtrip this summer. They also tried visitscotland.com but didn't find it as helpful

Meikleour Beech Hedge

by weewatty

Often not quoted in guidebooks to the area is the Meikleour Beech Hedge, pretty well known locally though.

Well its basically a big muckle hedge, infact the tallest in the world. And thats about that, but heres a bit about it anyway:

It was planted around 1745 by Robert Murray Nairne and his wife Jean Mercer of Meikleour, shortly after this he was killed fighting the English (a thing us Scots done alot in the past) at the Battle of Culloden. Reaching 120 feet at its tallest point it must be a whore of a job to trim.

Anyway, stop off at the layby, see it, take a photo then claim to your friends you have seen 'the Tallest Hedge in the World'. How more wordly can you get?? ;-)

Its found on the Perth to Blairgowrie road, just after crossing the River Tay if driving from Perth, about 11 miles from the city.

Perth Museum & Art Gallery

by scotlandscotour

Free!

One of the oldest in Scotland. Amongst the boring stuff you'll find some amazing bits that bring Perthshire History and Archaeology to life.

Opens 10.00 - and well worth 2 hours.

A good option should it rain (hardly ever in Perth but sometimes)

The Fair City

by zizkov

Perth, known as the fair city, is a bridge between the Highlands and the Lowlands. Like a few other places, it has had a spell as capital of Scotland, and the neighbouring Scone Palace was the traditional site for the crowning of Scottish royals. Historically a market town, but now subject to the ravages of modern commerce like any sizable place, it still retains a genteel charm; and the rolling countryside of South Perthshire is some of the loveliest in Scotland.

.
.
I visit occasionally, my latest visit being prompted by a striking picture of the tower in Kinnoull Wood on the pages of leffe3. I didn't know anything about this before, so, being a nice autumn day, I decided to jump in my car and find out.

Perth has had several names in the past, including Saint Johnstoun - now the name of the local football team.
