Pitlochry, Scotland

The Scottish Highlands can be the perfect place to see fall foliage. Parts of the region are legendary for their stark, treeless landscapes, but the land around Pitlochry is characterized by dense forests and meadows. The heather here turns purple in the autumn, while the forests have typically bright colors.

Apart from leaf-gazing, there are plenty of other activities in Pitlochry. You can also see lots of fauna, hear local stags rutting and see the young males locking horns. The salmon make their run upriver in the fall as well.
