Loch Turret Crieff

The 'Gateway to the Highlands' offers the ideal location for your holiday. Nestling amongst the stunning Strathearn countryside, Crieff used to be a Drovers town where cattle were driven south. Today it is a friendly, vibrant, market town. Browse through the local art galleries or bookshops, drool over the local hand-made sweet shop or local produce in the delis, buy the finest meat and fish from the butcher or fish shop, get fresh bread from the bakery or tuck into a slap up feast at any of a host of restaurants, catering for both Scottish and world cuisine.

But there's so much more to do. For the walker or mountain biker, there are miles and miles of forest walks, trails and mountains, including Munros such as Ben Chonzie, Ben Vorlich and Stuc a'Croin. Watersports are available at nearby Lochearnhead, there's even parachuting at the local Strathallan airfield, where you might spot some balloon enthusiasts too. The River Earn is famous for its trout and salmon fishing and anglers come from all over Britain. Within a few minutes walk at Crieff Hydro, you have an equestrian centre, off-road course, quad-biking, lazer quest, air rifles, archery, sauna, spa, squash. In nearby Comrie, there's the Auchingarrich wildlife centre which children will love. Local whisky distilleries include the Famous Grouse Experience and Tullibardine.

The area is a golfer's paradise: from the world famous Gleneagles to courses in Auchterarder, Crieff, Comrie, St Fillans and Muthill set in stunning countryside and all within about 20 minutes of Crieff.

There's plenty of wildlife. Crieff is on the flightpath for Canadian geese, so could you be lucky to see squadrons of geese coming in for the day or leaving for the night. But you also see buzzards, red kites and ospreys, although the locals tend to keep quiet about the location of osprey nests! As a Drover's town, you'll see Highland cattle, both red and roe deer and red squirrels. A walk into the hills will usually give you sight of pheasants, partridges, grouse and if you're very lucky capercaillie.

At the end of the day, either put your feet up and gaze into the dreamy wood-burning stove or pop into one of the local pubs for a wee dram. One hostelry boasts over 100 malts, more than enough for any whisky connoisseur!
