This area of Highland Perthshire is perfect walking territory - there are two Monros close at hand, Ben Chonzie and Ben Vorlich, and a huge network of both invigorating and more gentle walks that can be started straight from the cottage. The bird watching fraternity will find plenty to interest them and for those who enjoy cycling, bikes can be hired locally. Fishing for salmon and brown trout is available from March - September on a stretch of the River Earn (permits are sold in the village).

For the golfer, Comrie has a renowned 9-hole golf course and there are many more within easy reach: Gleneagles is only 14 miles and St Andrews just 1.5 hours by road. Clay pigeon shooting can be arranged at Gleneagles Hotel. Water sports including canoeing, kayaking and waterskiing are run from Lochearnhead just 12 miles away. In addition, it is possible for arrangements to be made with Crieff Hydro to provide access to its wide range of outdoor activities, horse riding, quad-biking, off-roading, high wires, tennis and golf. For less active but hugely uplifting therapies, Senses Spa, in the village, offers a wonderful range of treatments and massages.

Within easy reach are many interesting and historic places including Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument, Scone Palace with the Stone of Destiny, the Italianate gardens of Drummond Castle, Balhousie Castle in Perth where the Black Watch Museum is situated, Blair Castle and its intriguing gardens, and the House of Bruar for a spot of shopping. Only 6 miles, away just west of Crieff, is The Famous Grouse Experience for whisky enthusiasts and locally, in a part of the village called the Ross, is the Earthquake House, one of the oldest permanent seismic observatories in the country set up in 1840 by the local postmaster and the local shoemaker and built in 1874.

Food is an important part of one's holiday and for self-catering it is good to know that Comrie has an excellent butcher, greengrocer (organic vegetable boxes can be ordered) and delicatessen. Willie the fish man's van appears at Tomnagaske every Tuesday evening with not only the day's catch but also homemade bread and very delicious oatcakes! There are also great places to eat out in Comrie itself as well as in the surrounding area if you want time off from cooking on holiday!
