Scotlands salmon rivers are world famous – there is also a huge variety of trout fishing. The river Earn is close-by offering both salmon and trout fishing (permits required).

Drummond fishery and trout farm is just west of Comrie.

Motor Cycling

Scotland has some of the best biking roads in the world – the scenery is truly magnificent. We are bikers and would be pleased to give advice on some of the most spectacular roads in Perthshire and further afield. Spend a few days with us – we can give you details of ride outs and day trips.
Private off-road parking is available with washing facilities.


Perthshire has some of the best cycle routes in the UK, with the added bonus of dramatic scenery and diverse wildlife. There are routes and trails to suite all abilities. Why not try the scenic Sustrans cycle route number 7 which runs along the quiet southern shore of Loch Tay.

Off-roaders are also well catered for with an extensive selection of forestry and other tracks many of which are close to the main A9.


Many visitors to Scotland want to sample the vast array of single malt whiskies available. Perthshire is fortunate to have many famous distilleries to chose from.

Tullibardine distillery nestles at the foot of the Ochil Hills in Blackford which is about 3 miles away.

Dewars World of Whisky at Aberfeldy is well worth a visit and is only 30 minutes drive away.

Glenturret distillery – home of the “famous grouse” whisky – Scotlands oldest legal  distillery has a tremendous visitor centre situated just outside Crieff and is only 20 minutes drive.

Edradour distillery near Pitlochry is Scotlands smallest distillery and traces its history back to 1825. This can reached in 45 minutes.

All the distilleries mentioned offer guided tours and tastings.
