Hotels, B&Bs and businesses of all sizes are welcome to support our efforts to develop and conserve the Perthshire countryside on their doorsteps. We have three business support schemes that allow you to collect voluntary donations from your visitors or guests towards these areas. The best part is they are all free to join!

Supporting Perthshire Big Tree Country scheme

With more than 200,000 acres of woodlands, which include more champion trees than anywhere else in the UK, Perthshire is Big Tree Country

In 2007, we founded the Supporting Perthshire Big Tree Country Scheme to expand what was achieved through the original Heritage and Access Project to establish PBTC and continue that work through our Perthshire Conifer Conservation Programme.

The scheme created a way for Perthshire’s accommodation providers and businesses to contribute to the conservation of our countryside and to environmental projects in the landscapes so essential to their visitors' / guests’ experience.

To date the scheme has raised over £400,000 to support our work!
