There is something to interest everyone in Perthshire. The historic city of Stirling is a twenty-five-minute drive to the south and provides many places of historical interest to visit from Stirling Castle to the Wallace Monument. Blair Drummond Safari Park is also near to Stirling and is a great day out for the family while Scotland's ancient capital of Perth is only a twenty-minute drive to the north. It has a large selection of shops, eateries, leisure facilities, cinema and theatre and there are many historical places of interest also in this area.
Gleneagles railway station is situated nearby, linking in to the national rail network. There is the Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery, Crieff and Tullibardine Distillery, Blackford is only a few miles south from Gleneagles. Drummond Gardens at Muthill is a must to visit during the summer months with its stunning formal planting.
There is fishing available in the River Earn as well as on a number of lochs such as Loch Earn and Loch Tay. The Ochil Hills are gentle and rolling in this part of Perthshire and Ben Chonzie is an easy Munro to be ’bagged’.
