Venturing inland, hop on the Highland main line to Pitlochry, a historic town surrounded by Perthshire landscapes and a popular destinatio­n ever since Queen Victoria visited in 1842.

The town also has a whisky distillery as well as the Moulin microbrewe­ry – one of the first in Scotland.

The Pitlochry Festival Theatre is the town’s cultural and arts hub, with performanc­es throughout the year. Anglers can hire boats to go trout fishing on


Faskally, where wildlife such as kingfisher­s, otters and deer can be spotted.

If you have extra time on your hands, there are plenty of places to discover nearby, including Scone Palace, where Robert the Bruce was crowned and which was the temporary home of the real Macbeth.

The Hermitage is a stretch of beautiful Highland scenery half an hour from Pitlochry, where you can stroll across the River Braan to Ossian’s Hall, a folly decorated with mirrors built by the 18th century Dukes of Atholl.
