From Glasgow/Stirling take M9/A9 towards Perth until you see the sign for Forteviot (about 5 miles before Perth). Be careful here as you need to slow down in the fast lane to turn right across the dual carriageway - waiting in the central reservation if necessary. Continue down the steep hill until you reach a junction and turn right, crossing the stonebridge towards Forteviot. The Coach House is about half a mile along this road on the right hand side with a huge Monkey Puzzle Tree in the garden, just before you reach Forteviot village.

From Edinburgh take the M90 to Perth (via the Forth Road Bridge) and take exit 9 marked Bridge of Earn. Continue the centre of Bridge of Earn and here take a left turn onto the B935 signposted Forgandenny, Forteviot and Dunning. Continue on this road for approximately 5 miles passing through Forteviot until you reach a junction signposted Dunning or Perth. Take the Perth direction crossing over the level crossing and The Coach House is on the left hand side, with the big Monkey Puzzle Tree in the garden.
