Heart 200

The Heart 200 route takes in the very best of central Scotland and lowland Perthshire and is easily accessible from both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

We’d recommend you start in historic Stirling, with its iconic castle - a former royal palace and integral to the legends of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. From Stirling, head north through the Trossachs and the pretty tourist towns of Callander and Aberfoyle, then on to Loch Earn and Loch Tay. Then east to the foot of the Cairngorms and a break for some world-class shopping and refreshment at the House of Bruar, before heading south again via Blair Atholl, Pitlochry, Scone Palace and the ‘Fair City’ of Perth on the banks of the mighty River Tay. The final loop, up through picturesque Glendevon, takes you by Gleneagles Hotel, Crieff, Comrie and Dunblane. Along the way you’ll discover distilleries, golf courses, wildlife parks, castles, gardens and theatres and almost endless opportunities to explore the very best of Scotland’s great outdoors.
