Perthshire - The Heart of Scotland
Perthshire is in the heart of Scotland. Dunkeld and Blair Atholl (Blair Castle and miles of walking trails) are attractive villages just off the A9, the main road to the Highlands. Pitlochry is a busy town, with a theatre.  Highland Perthshhire is walking territory and where better to go than the Tay Forest Park, which is in the care of Forestry Commission Scotland,  and there is an extensive network of walks.

Just north of Pitlochry is Faskally Forest, a must-visit if you enjoy the outdoors - a rich mix of woodland species,and plenty of wildlife.

ANGUS
The county of Angus, fertile farmland, is less well known to many visitors but just as intersting as Perthshire; Blairgowrie is a busy market town, and Alyth, not far away, is a good starting point for exploring the Angus Glens, ideal for walking, both low level and higher up; try Glen Prosen, Glen Isla, Glen Clova and Glen Esk.  On the coast are a couple of long, sandy beaches, and small villages, such as Monifieth, whilst in the main town, Dundee, you should visit Discovery Point, the visitor centre devoted to Scott's exploration of Antarctica.

For lovers of Scotland’s heritage, Historic Scotland's Arbroath Abbey is a must; because it was here, in 1320, that Robert the Bruce and his nobles signed the Declaration of Independence from England, vowing that never would Scots submit to the English. Reminiscent of a gentler age, is the House of Dun near Montrose epitomising the way of life of the landed gentry.

Perthshire and Angus are also great for bird-watchersLoch of the Lowes near Dunkeld has ospreys, great crested grebes, coots, mallards, herons and goldeneye ducks.  Montrose Basin is great for sea-birds and migrating birds, especially in the spring.
