The Tay Landscape Partnership was formed to work with local communities to improve walking and cycling access, conserve historic sites and wildlife, and share the history, stories, countryside and traditional skills of this local area.
It is guided by Perth & Kinross Countryside Trust and Perth & Kinross Heritage Trust, who are passionate about this fascinating and unique landscape and has two overarching aims:
“To celebrate and enhance for future generations the landscapes where the rivers Tay and Earn meet”
“To reconnect residents and visitors with the natural, built and cultural heritage of the area”
Developing the scheme in detail over 2012 and 2013, we worked with a broad range of organisations, groups and individuals to plan a suite of 28 diverse yet interconnected projects that will run from 2014 to 2017. Each of these projects falls under one of our key themes:
Conserving or restoring the built or natural heritage
Encouraging more people, and a wider range of people, to take an active part in their landscape
Increasing opportunities for people to have access to, and learn about, the landscape and its heritage
Provide training opportunities for people in local heritage skills
The Tay Landscape Partnership area extends over 200 sq km and includes the Carse of Gowrie, Perth, Kinnoull and Moncrieffe Hills and lower Strathearn, from Forteviot to Newburgh.
