We have added a new perthshire gallery to the PhotographicView website. It is home territory so includes places we visit regularly. Perthshire features some of the best known tourist trail beauty spots.
Here is our list of top places( so far) to visit in Perthshire if you are into photography:
- Linn of Tummel
- Rumbling Bridge
- Queens View
- Loch Rannoch
- Birks of Aberfeldy
A fantastic feature of Perthshire is the autumn colour to be found in its woodlands. Trees cover most hills and line the rivers that flow through the county such as the Tay, Garry and Tummel. Singer songwriter Dougie McLean organises the Perthshire Amber festival of acoustic music at the end of October when the autumn colour is at its finest.
Perthshire also boasts the tallest tree in the UK at the Hermitage near Dunkeld and the last oak tree from Birnam forest made famous in Shakespeares Macbeth can be found at nearby Birnam
If you are in the vicinity or travelling along the A9 then then you can stop off at the towns of Dunkeld or Pitlochry. we will discuss Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Kinnloch Rannoch and other fabulous villages in another post.
Part of Perthshire that is not on the tourist trail is Strathearn. From the Bridge of Earn to Loch Earn it nestles beneath the Ochil Hills. It is rich arable farmland and right in the middle of Scotland with the A9 to Glasgow on one side and the M90 to Edinburgh on the other. As it is our doorstep we aim to seek out any feasible angle for backdoor photography.
Hope to see you there sometime and if you do drop us a note here. We might plan a future photo tour around these spots and would like to know if that is something a group of people would be interested in.
