A holiday in Scotland is a great way to spend quality time, letting you explore the wilderness before retiring to a cosy retreat. Perthshire is known as ‘the big county’ north of the border, as it stretches from the Lowland valleys up to the Highland peaks. And where better to start exploring than the scenic River Edge Lodges?

Riverside luxury at the gateway to the Highlands

River Edge Lodges sit on an enviable vantage point overlooking the River Earn. Kintillo, which claims to be the oldest village in Scotland, is the nearest conurbation, lined with charming 18th century thatched cottages. Perth, Dundee, Edinburgh and the Highlands are also all easily accessible for a day trip.

The site features high-sided wooden cabins that can accommodate 4 – 8 people, with cosy interiors, statement wood beams, and skylights that drape the walls with light. Fishing, farm animals and a children’s outdoor play area are all available at this family-run site, helping you to start your holiday whilst barely leaving your lodge.

Enjoy the Scottish wilderness with a holiday in Perthshire

No holiday in Perthshire would be complete without a healthy dose of outdoor pursuits. For a more sedate hike, you can visit The Hermitage Woodland Walk or Birnam Wood – made famous in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Alternatively, you can enjoy family thrills at Nae Limits Adventure, or stop off for a taste for the area at Edradour Distillery.

The area has history dating back as far as the Iron Age, which you can relive at The Scottish Crannog Centre, or enjoy the splendour of the many castles and palaces, including The Black Watch Castle & Museum, Scone Palace and Drummond Gardens.
