Perth and Kinross Council have launched a brand new interactive website aimed at allowing tourists to make the most out of their time visiting the area.

The area boats stunning scenery, a vibrant cultural scene and thriving food and drink sector, all of which can be found on the website to give tourists key information on where to go and what to do.

Perth & Kinross Council’s convenor of Environment and Infrastructure, Councillor Angus Forbes, said:

“This website is another important tool in our Visitor Management programme.

“Last year we were inundated with visitors and while the vast majority of those were well-behaved and considerate of others, a small number were not.

“Along with the other work we are doing, such as the appointment of Visitor Rangers, this website will help people enjoy Perth and Kinross considerately.

“It will also give visitors the chance to say what we’re doing well and what we can be doing better. Their feedback will help us to continue making improvements.

“Tourism is a major part of our economy and we want to make the visitor experience as positive as possible for everyone.”

The website has been created by the Visitor Management Working Group, which is led by Perth & Kinross Council and involves organisations such as Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue and Forestry & Land Scotland to manage the 2021 tourist season.

Its work focuses on three areas: engagement, enforcement, and infrastructure.

A key element of being a good visitor to Highland Perthshire is having awareness of the Outdoor Access Code. Whether you are visiting for the day for an event or a weekend of walking and cycling, the Code has some key advice for any type of visitor.

The interactive website also points out helpful locations of amenities in the area such as public toilets and car parks. Perth & Kinross Council are keen to focus on engagement and asks visitors to mark locations on an interactive map that will help the Council identify issues and opportunities and improve the area.

The website is live now and can be found at: www.perthandkinrossvisitoradvice.commonplace.is
