Activities to Try Nearby

There is so much on offer that we just can't fit it all onto one page.

So we have devised four categories from you to choose from, but each is not exclusive to the others...


Here are a selection of links that we hope will help you plan your stay with us.

You'll find plenty of tourist brochures and leaflets in your accommodation or just ask either Bruce or Hilary. 

Whatever it is that you want to do we can help you plan it.



There are courts in the village (tickets available from the village shop) plus indoor and outdoor courts at Gleneagles or Stirling University.

There is an abundance of golf courses in the locality and a good starting point would be the website. On our doorstep is the 9-hole Dunning Golf Club and they are delighted to welcome new guests. Nearby are Auchterarder and Crieff and of course the prestigious courses of Gleneagles, Carnoustie and St Andrews to name but a few.

There are plenty of cycle routes and your hosts know all the local ones – just ask! There is a bicycle repair shop in Auchterarder (Synergy Cycles) where you can rent bikes by the day or fix the ones you have. It also has a couple of community electric bikes which are available but prior booking is required. There is also a very good bike hire shop in Dunkeld.



The River Tay runs right through the heart of Perthshire and if you're interested in catching a salmon then this is the place to look. If you prefer trout then why not try Drummond Fish Farm, Sandyknowes or Frandy Fishery where you're “almost” guaranteed a bite. Or you could watch the salmon leap during the season either up the waterfall at Buchanty Spout or through the salmon ladder at Pitlochry.



We are ideally situated for hikes and walks for all abilities (there's even a rucksack and thermos provided should you wish to take a picnic!) A good website to look at is “WalkHighlands” which grades walks and hikes very clearly from a gentle stroll, or a more adventurous hike up to bagging a Monroe. Or head over to Loch Katrine and take the steam boat down the loch and walk or cycle back. Right on our doorstep is Craig Rossie for a bit of a hill climb or you could visit the Roman Forts at Findo Gask- whatever your ability there is something for everyone – just ask us and we'd be happy to advise.


There is everything within a short distance … indoor and outdoor bouldering near Dumbarton and Glasgow, skiing and snowboarding either at Aviemore or Glenshee when the snow is here or at Hillend, Edinburgh on the dry ski slope when it's not! Zip lining and tree top walks near Aviemore, bungee jumping at Pitlochry, river tubing, canoeing, paddle sports near Aberfeldy, mountain biking from Dunkeld, Kite Surfing and Land Yachting at St Andrews – the list goes on and on!
