This is a rural location in the heart of picturesque Strathearn and at the gateway to the Highlands of Perthshire. You will enjoy a peaceful scenic stay which ensures a relaxing break. However there are opportunities for some varied and interesting walks (for all levels of walkers including hill walks) as well as loch and river fishing (River Earn has rainbow and brown trout) and mountain biking and water sports at Loch Earn. Crieff town is two miles away and Comrie village is five miles in the opposite direction. The Glenturret Distillery (Famous Grouse) is just over a mile away.
There are award winning restaurants in both Crieff and Comrie. Attractions further afield include The Trossachs, Loch Lomond, St Andrews, as well as the cities and towns of Aberfeldy, Pitlochry, Dunkeld, Perth, Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow which are all an hour’s drive away.
