Scottish Adventure Breaks - Capercaillie Escapes

Highland Perthshire is a gem in Scotland.

Less than 90 minutes from both Edinburgh and Glasgow an adventure in Perthshire is a great idea for an escape throughout the year.  With brilliant access, beautiful scenery and bold adventure breaks on offer what are you waiting for?

With so much to see and do in the area we have a few of our favourites to share…

Wild Canyon Adventures

Scottish Canyoning and Gorge Walking are two of the most memorable, exhilarating and adventurous adrenaline activities the UK has to offer.  Join expert guides as you navigate your way, jumping off cliffs, wild swimming, sliding down natural water flumes, abseiling and scrambling under waterfalls of the Bruar and Calvine.

With a range of canyon trips available, whether you are a total beginner or an adrenaline junkie there’s an experience for everyone.

Exhilarating Off-Road Experience

Enjoy a truly unforgettable off-road driving experience in the luxury of one of the latest models in the Range Rover and Land Rover fleet across miles of wild highland private estates. Joined by expert instructors you’re in safe hands as you take the vehicles on challenging tracks to see what they can really do. This is an exhilarating experience throughout the year combined with breath-taking scenery which you can enjoy for anything from an hour to a full day.

If you’re game, there are a unique range of activities for larger groups too including blindfold driving or team building activities which include vehicle tennis and vehicle circus, or there is also the opportunity to test out your own vehicle on a half day or full day adventure.  Other activities can also be included such as quad-biking and clay pigeon shooting.

Superb Stand-Up Paddle Board Adventures

One of the best ways to experience our highland landscape is to immerse yourself in it.  A unique stand up paddling experience on our lochs and rivers allows you to explore this ancient tranquil wilderness in fun and active way with an expert local guide.   From a couple of hours to a half or full day adventure this is a brilliant activity that can be enjoyed by all the family and groups. No previous experience required and you’ll be given all the equipment you need (as well as a wee hot chocolate enroute!)

Highland Mountain Safari

Enjoy a unique highland safari experience with a kilted mountain ranger in a 4×4 guided drive to nearly 3000ft with views over miles of untouched wilderness. Search for rare wildlife including the famous Grouse, the elusive Mountain Hare, the majestic Red Deer and the soaring Golden Eagle.

Enjoy a wee dram and local shortbread as you take in the history and heritage of this great wilderness environment. Back at base you can also enjoy biking trails and encounter Red Deer and Barn Owls up close at an exclusive centre.

Glorious Highland Golf

For adventure of a slightly slower pace why not bring your clubs and enjoy the challenge of a golf course in highland Perthshire.  With at least seven great 9 to 18 hole courses to choose from in the area you are spoilt for choice and a highland golf tour could be a wonderful way to explore the area. You have Killin, Strathtay, Dunkeld and Birnum, Mains of Taymouth, Pitlochry, Aberfeldy and Blair Atholl to name a few – all boasting fantastic scenery and panoramic views.

With an abundance of excellent guest house, hotel and self-catering accommodation in the area we are able to prepare a bespoke package that suits your interests and budget.
