As the evening glimmers in golden light and the sky is filled with the noisy symphony of returning geese, Scotland reveals what may be its most romantic time of year – autumn. While hedgerows grow thick with bramble and berry, and the trees crackle with leaves the colour of flame, there is perhaps no better place to experience the beauty of the season than in the stunning region of Perthshire.
Known for its forests, lochs, rushing rivers and soaring Highland mountains, Perthshire is also affectionately nicknamed: Big Tree Country. At the coming of autumn, the bewitching glens of this historic county begin to blaze with colour; the woods awash with the sights and sounds of autumn. The cathedral-like branches of beech trees, bright in their copper-coloured leaves bounce sunshine along winding woodland paths, mushrooms sprout and apples fall as salmon run up river and stags begin to roar. Crisp mornings, pink afternoons and evenings made for roaring fires – this season is a delight to the senses. Of course, visiting Scotland at any time of year is special, but there’s no denying that Perthshire, in autumn, is something rather spectacular.
