Old Tree County is what they call the Perthshire Highlands. In the little town of Dunkeld/Birnham some of the oldest and tallest trees in the UK can be found. Also these large oaks which are believed to be over a thousand years old. Just beside the river Tay it is difficult to imagine the things these trees must have witinissed in their lives. They also play an important role in Shakespeare's macbeth. When in Dunkeld get impressed by these huge giants. It is just a quick stop.
