Where we are

There is always plenty to do, see and visit around here, covering every interest and pass time. The area is rich in Golf Courses, Castles, Gardens, Fishing opportunities, Walking, Art & Antiques and exciting seasonal Race Meetings at Scone Race Course.

GOLF

Perthshire is particularly good for golfers. Championship courses of Gleneagles, St. Andrews and Rosemount Blairgowrie are close by as are numerous courses for the amateurs.

FISHING & SHOOTING

We are a stones throw away from The River Tay, near Islamouth and there are clay pigeon shooting schools at Dunkeld, Auchterhouse and Gleneagles.

THE OLD AND THE NEW

We are close to many ancient and historic buildings.
Scone Palace and Scone Race Course are but 10 minutes from here with both Blair Castle and Glamis Castle being only 40 minutes. They all offer an excellent day out.
The exciting, brand new V&A museum in Dundee is just 25 minutes away and next to it Discovery Point where Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s ship is docked and open to visitors.
There is also The Royal Yacht Britannia, based at Leith in Edinburgh and open to visitors.  Combine it with a day trip to Edinburgh City where you might also see the Castle and the National Museum and Gallery.

EATING OUT

You may like to try one of our very good local pubs or restaurants, taste the local beer and the counties fresh produce. Alternatively there is an excellent choice of good Restaurants in Perth, which you could also combine with going to the theatre.
