Perthshire Talks Tourism is a series of new webinars, each one led by a different local tourism association or group across Perthshire, which aims to inspire, inform and connect tourism businesses across the region.

So far we've heard from three local tourism associations / groups and many inspiring local tourism businesses from across Perthshire – what they've got planned, opportunities to work together, and ultimately make sure that our visitors know about all the inspiring things to see and do while in Perthshire.
