    Situated on the east coast of Scotland, St Andrews is a town made world famous both by its university and as ‘the international home of golf’, although its earliest origins lie back in the Dark Ages, when its predecessor town, Kilrymont, was more simply home to hardworking fishermen and farmers. The ruins of its once-fine cathedral, are a consequence of a combination of fire damage, disuse following the Reformation and, more prosaically, being plundered for building materials, although now its remains are lovingly curated and preserved for visitors.

    The centrally-located county of Perthshire has a wide variety of landscapes, and is known by many as ‘Big Tree Country’, for the presence of numerous tall trees, conifer plantations, and the tallest and longest hedge in Britain – and possibly the world – the latter being the beech hedges at Meikleour.

    To the north lies Tayside, a region of fabulous rivers which offer numerous wonderful opportunities for anglers, with abundant stocks of fish, including wild brown trout and grayling, Atlantic salmon fishing and excellent course fishing, and where perch, pike, roach and tench are just some of the available species to be caught.

    Things to do in St Andrews, Perthshire and Tayside
    With Carnoustie, St Andrews and Gleneagles all within the region, golf is obviously a key attraction for many visitors, with numerous golf courses catering for all skill-levels and sizes of pocket. In addition to fishing, hill walking and climbing, the area is a mecca for those who love the great outdoors writ large. Orienteering is a popular pursuit, as well as more extreme activities, including canyoning, whitewater rafting, snowsports, cliff jumping and microlight flights.

    Top Destinations

    Dundee – In the central Lowlands on the northern banks of the Firth of Tay, Dundee was founded on the textile industry, with the export of raw wool leading on to the production of finished textiles, first linen and then jute.  Named after one of the ‘jute barons’, James Key Caird, the Caird Hall is the principal concert hall in the city, and just one of a variety of local venues which regularly host a wide range of arts events.

    Montrose– This resort town is perched on the coast between the mouths of the North and South Esk rivers, in a natural habour that has been an area of trading since mediaeval times. The two-mile square lagoon basin that is known as the Montrose Basin is a nature reserve of national importance, celebrated for its pink-footed geese, Peregrine falcons and wigeon, as well as for a myriad of other birdlife and wildfowl.

    Arbroath – An important fishing port, Arbroath has fine sandy beaches as well as spectacular red sandstone cliffs, making it popular family holiday resort. The ruins of the 12th century Arbroath Abbey dominate the centre of the town, and the Abbey is believed to have been the place where the Declaration of Arbroath – a declaration of Scottish independence – was drafted.

    Blairgowrie – Perhaps lesser known for being the home of Tayside Ferret Rescue, Blairgowrie is a town of red stone buildings, lying on the banks of the River Ericht near to the spectacular gorges in Strathmore. Nearby the Scottish Wildlife Trust reserve at the Loch of Lowes is a super location from which to spot ospreys and otters. To the north, the Spittal of Glenshee is home to Scotland’s largest centre for skiing.

    Carnoustie – World famous for its golf course, Carnoustie is also well known for its gloriously fine windswept and sandy beach; Carnoustie Bay offers visitors ample opportunities for canoeing, sailing, yachting and windsurfing, making it a popular location for any holidaymakers who happen to be a little less focused on the golf links.

    Pitlochry – A town with plenty of the architecture that still reflects its Victorian heyday, the mountains surrounding Pitlochry attract hill walkers and climbers, making it a popular touring base for visitors to the local area. The eastern end of the Rob Roy Way – a long distance footpath – runs across to the village of Drymen in the west, where it meets with the longer West Highland Way. This 93 mile path crosses the Highland Boundary Fault, the geological feature where the Lowlands and Highlands intersect, giving the route some spectacular views during the course of the typical seven days that it takes to walk the path.

    Glenrothes – In the heart of Fife, Glenrothes has won numerous awards for the quality of its parks and landscaping. Although a modern construction, created as one of Scotland’s post-war ‘new towns’, the area was already established as several hamlets which had been built to house workers from the local paper mills. Home to a number of ancient stone circles, today the town also plays host to a selection of modern sculptures and artworks, many of which not only act as local landmarks, but have also been recently earmarked for listed status, such is their noteworthy nature.

    Gleneagles – Once again, golf is a central focus for visitors to this town, although there are ample opportunities for horse riders and walkers, in this fine glen location between the Ochil Hills.

    Crieff – Lying on the southern edges of the Scottish Highlands, the ancient market town of Crieff has developed into a tourist hub, from its origins in whisky distilling and cattle trading. Each year the Market Park in the town plays host to the traditional Crieff Highland Games, and throughout the rest of the year Macrosty Park is a great place for Summer picnics, and indeed is said to be one of the most picturesque parks in the whole of Scotland.
