Two places.
Best is Buchanty Spout.
Near the village of Buchanty on the Almond. Park at the bridge and follow the path up the river a bit. The rocks can be slippy - take care.
Other place is Cargills leap in Blairgowrie on the Ericht.
Think there’s parking near by. Watch out for poachers there!

Hermitage on the Braan at Dunkeld or Buchanty Spout on the Almond north of Crieff.
Both need water though.
Was going to mention the Hermitage - nice spot & nice walk.
Not many fish jumping there these days - since SNH banned the Tay board from using the upper Braan for putting eggs, fry etc in.

More to do with M.S.S. than S.N.H. I think?

If you take the Crief road from dunkeld Buchanty is 20 mins maybe half an hours drive. You drive down theough the Sma glen it’s a lovely road with mountains either side. Lovely wee bit for a picnic at the bottom of the glen at the side of the river.
