Drummond Hill

A hill with history

Drummond Hill was probably Scotland’s first managed forest. Sir Duncan Campbell, known as Black Duncan of Breadalbane because of his ruthless character, planted it with oak, birch and Scots pine back in the 17th century. Now it’s a rich habitat that’s home to lots of wildlife, and part of the fascinating heritage of forests that make up Perthshire’s Big Tree Country.

Keep a look out for the boar carvings in stones that mark one of the walks here – they’re based on the boar of the Clan Campbell’s crest.

Explore the Iron Age

Highland Perthshire is composed of exciting and dramatic landscapes steeped in history – and none more so than the mountains and glens around Loch Rannoch, Loch Tummel and Loch Tay. Here you can find once mighty hillforts, still commanding fine views over their ancient dominions. Explore further and you can find evidence of many smaller ringforts, duns and crannogs, the fortified homesteads of Iron Age farmers and their kin. For more information download our Explore The Iron Age leaflet.
