The current situation in Scotland, and indeed around the world, resulting from the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has created a time of uncertainty and challenge for everyone. We are doing everything we can to keep our staff safe. As such and in line with UK and Scottish Government advice, all Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust staff are now working from home for their and the public’s health and safety. Therefore, we ask for your patience, as it may take longer than usual to respond to your enquiries.
We will continue to work to keep residents of and visitors to Perthshire up-to-date with the latest visitor information for those sites across the area in which we work (including local path networks, Perthshire Big Tree Country and the Cateran Trail). Getting some time outside continues to be beneficial to mental and physical health and well-being as the country reopens.
We encourage everyone who wishes to visit the outdoors to respect the essential social distancing measures still in place and keep two metres away from other people you come across.
You can find the latest Government advice here.
Our outdoor projects, including site visits, path improvement works and tree planting / GPS-plotting have begun again after some months off.
Please be aware that there are still some events across Perthshire that have been cancelled in 2020, such as The Enchanted Forest, so please check their websites or social media for performance details.
Together, we can all get through this. Together, we can all keep ourselves and others safe. Be kind, thoughtful and helpful to one another.
The Rights of Responsible Access still apply – but please follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and the latest Scottish Government Advice.
