Welcome to Perthshire Big Tree Country

Perthshire has some of the most remarkable trees, woodlands and country gardens in Europe and is the place, to be no matter what time of year.

Just a short trip can take you to Europe's oldest tree, the world's highest hedge, the sole survivor from Shakespeare's 'Birnam Wood' ... and it doesn’t stop there. Check out our ancient tree hunt feature and discover for yourself the wealth of ancient trees listed for Perth & Kinross on the Woodland Trust database.

Find out why Big Tree Country is the centre of a global rescue operation ... iCONic is just one of the new and exciting projects taking place in the area. The 'Supporting Big Tree Country Scheme' in operation at Gleneagles and Dunkeld Hilton hotels is helping this and other projects.

Whatever you choose to do be sure to make the most of Big Tree Country in all its glory.
