history & heritage

Perthshire has seen some of Scotland 's most historic events, and many of them are still preserved in our landscape, our place names and our culture.

Kings and Queens, armies and generals, poets and artists - even heroes - all have passed this way, leaving behind a rich legacy of castles, churches, battlefields and historic sites.

Roman encampments, mysterious Pictish carved stones and medieval castles dot a landscape once trodden by figures like Mary Queen of Scots, Robert the Bruce, William Wallace, Rob Roy MacGregor, Macbeth and Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Our history truly comes to life in our castles and stately homes which have been at the centre of Scotland 's history on countless occasions. But even during prehistoric times, when Scotland was being geologically formed, Perthshire was at the crossroads of the country.

Some of the most unusual and fascinating museum collections in Scotland can be found in Perthshire. An array of museums bring the area's history to life. Additionally there are some stunning archeological remains including the superb Crannog Centre near Aberfeldy.
