Archaeologists have uncovered evidence of Stone Age farmers, including Roman garrisons and Iron Age Forts.

A number of famous people are connected with Perthshire. The actor Ewan McGregor was born there and Stephen Hendry MBE now lives in the small town of Auchterarder (although he was born in Edinburgh).
