LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - April 06, 2016) -  In the midst of awesome landscapes and majestic, ancient architecture, Perthshire, Scotland, captivates visitors with its rich history and present day attractions. Known as the "big county," Perthshire offers a wide range of landscape types, including mountainous highlands, narrow glens and wide straths. This Scottish region offers enchanting castles to tour, age-old forestland to explore, and fine dining venues to experience. With cozy cottages set against a backdrop of rolling greenery, The Kenmore Club, an exquisite Diamond Resorts International® location, offers charming lodgings to guests for a perfect Perthshire vacation.

Immersed in bravery and folklore, Scotland's impressive history is exhibited grandly by the timeworn castles, such as Scone Palace. In addition to viewing its noble interiors, visitors are fascinated by the palace's stunning grounds and challenging garden maze. Art lovers can spend hours in the distinguished Perth Museum and Art Gallery, where the Old Masters are displayed alongside carved Pictish stones. Another popular attraction is the Beatrix Potter Exhibition, to which children of all ages make their merry way to hail Peter Rabbit. For evening entertainment, a first-class performance can be enjoyed at the memorable Perth Concert Hall. No visit to Scotland is complete without a tour of a traditional scotch whiskey distillery, found aplenty in Perthshire.

From sports activities extreme to tame, outdoor adventurists can choose their endeavor. With swift currents, the River Tay is ideal for white water rafting, and cliff jumpers can plunge down from the Bruar Gorge. Those with more moderate tastes can go horseback riding through the idyllic countryside, or rent a canoe and glide on the tranquil Loch Tay next to this Diamond Resorts International® location. A kilted ranger can be hired for a guided walk through the wilderness, and tours carry visitors up, down and through the woodlands. On foot or on wheels, a venture into the rugged terrain will yield glimpses of stunning scenery and wonderful wildlife.

The Kenmore Club, a family-friendly resort from Diamond Resorts International®, enhances a vacation in Perthshire with comfortable accommodations and a peaceful place to relax. This lovely resort appears like a picture-postcard, surrounded by trees and the calm waters of the Loch Tay. Scotland's famed poet, Robert Burns, was so enthralled by the area that he penned his love on the chimney breast of Scotland's oldest inn, located across the way. Each cottage of The Kenmore Club is fully equipped with all the amenities necessary for a pleasant stay, and spacious rooms provide plenty of space to relax after an active day.
