The City of Perth, Scotland – a guide to Perth and Perthshire

Depending on the weather, we might discuss and decide to reverse the route and first drive the day 2 and then day 1 route (so as to maximise sunshine and minimise rain).

Also on very rainy days, we may have less outdoor sightseeing and if the group so wishes, we may visit a whisky distillery, castle, museum, etc. indoors.

Photoalbum of some of our recent Scotland Unicorn Tours:
https://www.facebook.com/UnicornScotlandAdventureTours?ref=hl
(photos 22, 7 and 5 for the Northwest Highlands and as this tour #32 covers a wide range of regions we drive through on our longer tours to the Northwestern Highlands images for places we visit on this tour #32 can be found on almost any of our photoalbums, including Highland Perthshire photos 23, the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs nationalpark photos 15 and other photoalbums)

Depending on your preferences and interests, the main places that have been agreed and discussed, the overall time we have left after our stops (especially in the winter months with shorter daylight hours), the places listed above are just a few among other nearby options, that we might be travelling through and see, stopping at and/or visiting along the way as on each of our friendly, flexible and personalised tours we maximise and offer you the best tour experience given the conditions on the day (for example if it is pouring down with rain on one side of a mountain range, we believe in offering you the alternative sunny route on the other side of the mountains, etc.)

Subject to availability possible overnight (hostel, bed & breakfast, hotel, camping) options do all exist in the area, roughly half way into our 2 day tour. As there are too many possible places to stay at, we can check room availability for your preferred option at the time of your enquiry/booking.
