Aberfeldy is touted as the land of the superlatives as it is home to Perthshire's highest mountain; Scotland's longest river; and Europe's oldest living organism - the yew tree at Fortingall (supposedly the birth place to Pontius Pilate).

Loch Tay, the largest loch in Perthshire, dotted with some of the spectacular mountains and rolling hills is the perfect spot to pitch your tents to explore this enchanting strip of land.
