Journey Overview

There’s no better glimpse of Scotland than in scenic west Perthshire, Strathearn and Stirling.

This is a journey that is perfect for walkers, with many circular walks linking the route. But first, it’s culture, architecture and heritage in the museums and streets of Perth before the bus passes through Huntingtower Castle and is plunged deep into Keillor Forest, with views emerging across the valley to the Ochil Hills.

The forest breaks to unlock the Spa town of Crieff, which is built on a hillside, providing stunning views southwards across the Valley. If you are on the 15 bus, then it’s westwards into the Highland mountains to Comrie, with some journeys continuing further to St Fillans at the western end of Loch Earn.

Dunblane then follows with the bus now passing the Ochil Hills and Sherrimuir battlefield site and famous Dunblane Cathedral. Then it’s the Bridge of Allan and into Stirling, with its world-famous Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle and of course the irrepressible River Forth.
