Where in Scotland to visit in Autumn?

AlistairHorneAlistairHorne Member, VisitScotland Ambassador ✭✭

The transition of summer into the autumn months marks my favourite time of year to explore Scotland and photograph our landscapes. With the turning of the leaves, the outdoors makes a huge change in such a short space of time and it’s great to see up close and personal. 

The area of Perthshire, known as Big Tree Country, is the ideal spot to see this transformation, with an abundance of lochs, forests and mountains all within touching distance of roads and trails, making it a popular area to visit. With over 200,000 acres of woodlands, you have a variety of viewpoints, areas and places to discover in Perth and with the added touch of colour it’s well worth travelling to at this time of year. 

Below are some of my favourite pictures taken in Perthshire during these months, including shots from Garry Bridge and Loch Faskally. Let me know if you have been before or have any other suggestions of places to visit here!

    Perthshire is most definitely THE place to be during autumn. However last year we visited Caithness and Sutherland last October and it was stunning - even though the weather the best for us (makes it even more dramatic). 

    The colours and the light at this time of year really are bonnie. Ca

    These pictures are all so stunning!

    I also always look forward to seeing where @eilidh__cameron and @Lochgmarcp get to in their autumn adventures.
